Quoth Moses DeJong on Wed, 10 February:
: It could also get a little ugly when you combine it
: with the new -C (change dir while processing the jar command) option.
It is extremely *useful* in conjunction with the -C option! This is
how GNU tar works, and thousands system administrators have been
relying *heavily* upon this function for years. This is perhaps
the pinacle of Unix-style orthogonality of design. I expect it is
less useful in jar than in tar, in practice at this time, because
jar sees less administrative-style use. But that may change, as java
takes over the universe.
