Hmm. I think what you're proposing there would be the first non-pfs archive.

Oh is that what I'm doing? :-)

Err. Pseudo-File-System. http, ftp, sftp and local archive access are all implemented as pseudo-filesystems.

I'm very probably too ignorant of pfs to really say,
but I would have any write commands just write to the
tar, then send the whole tar at the close of the pfs
session. (is there such a thing?)

Yeah, "the close of the pfs session" exists. But that approach will work very poorly with concurrent access. Two people could make contradictory changes at the same time, then send the whole tar. The current systems have good locking systems to prevent that kind of situation.
