Didn't Write Tar Tape only arrive in 8.0? I don't think it was there in
7.2. There was a flaky tar tape facility in Unsupported, I recall, however.
Some folks at ILA let us use theirs, which worked fine. They sent it in
response to a request on SLUG, but I'm not positive I'm allowed to pass
it on. Anyone at ILA care to respond?
