tar should support -C on extract

Currently our tar supports a -C on creation and a few other operations, but does not support -C on extract like GNU and OS X tar do. The desired behaviour is for -C to chdir(2) to the nominated directory after opening the archive, but before extracting files.
Use cases include: Richard Lowe.
