       The th_set_*() functions each set an individual field of the current
       tar header associated with the TAR handle t.  The th_set_user() and
       th_set_group() functions set both the numeric user/group ID fields and
       the user/group name text fields.  The other functions set only the
       field that they refer to.

       The th_set_from_stat() function uses the other th_set_*() functions to
       set all of the fields at once, based on the data passed to it in the
       argument s.

       The th_finish() function sets the appropriate constants for the magic
       and version fields.  It then calculates the header checksum and fills
       in the checksum field.
