No, it's exactly the same, because they produce the same files almost
down to the byte. I've tested both cpio and pax uncompression with
WinZIP, and there was no difference, and it was also exactly as Rob
described it. WinZIP cannot handle USTAR. It does not matter if tar,
cpio och pax produce the files.
