I think you are saying that the only working way of restoring 
a backup from a single tar command is to either be a superuser
or get a superuser to do it for you.  You/they also have to know 
how to "restore file ownerships".

I know that I am not a "superuser".  So if I need my friendly 
superuser to do a restore, what do I tell him/her to do?
