comment Is there a way to convert a zip to a tar without extracting it to the filesystem?
@Anthon, just sent you some improvements to your bitbucket account. Let's continue this talk there. I hope you like the changes. :)

@Anthon, a really recommended video "beyond pep-8" (with an emphasis on the "line length" part of the video) for beautiful Python code: youtu.be/wf-BqAjZb8M

@Anthon, simply omit the assignment to tar_info.mtime and we use the start of the era (I like when all the fields are set to 0, as that may give a super micro-optimization in compression rate and also serves as "anonimization").

@Anthon, Thanks. I just read the code and saw that it needs some pep8 love (and some flexibility options (like not storing dates)). Do you want them?

Another comment: the reference to time lacks an import.

Exactly what I was looking for. I expected one utility like this to be available from standard unix packages. What is the license of this? I would like to propose it to be included in some packages (e.g., Debian's devutils), perhaps after some generalizations.

comment What doesn't need defragmentation? Linux or the ext2 ext3 FS?
If you use ext4, then you will be surprised to see how much fragmentation you can have when you run e4defrag -v . in a directory tree, especially if it contains, say, files downloaded with a torrent client (though some do use fallocate/posix_fallocate).
