Ditching Numeric.readOct for parsing tar headers brought this down to
~1.7s, which brings us down to where our biggest line-item is outside
of the TarIndex functionality.
We still spend ~33% of our time in indexing in some form.
If I get time I'll look into getting rid of Numeric.readOct in the
main-line (Data|Distribution.Client).Tar package.
