It's serious if a package's files overwrites files in another package.
It's not the case here.

cd $(mktemp -d)
mkdir etc
touch etc/motd
tar cf etc.tar etc/

And now, "tar -C / -xf etc.tar" overwrites /etc/motd. Is it a serious
bug against tar?

Gems could warn about a file being overwritten, but that's all, I think.
