	Keeping both will only produce a confused user.  If we are to keep
	both of them, some type of information needs to be given about the

I can't see anything wrong with using BSD tar as /bin/tar and GNU tar as 
/bin/gnu_tar or something.
A Wikipedia page for example could provide clarification on that matter.
