Yes, including my tarsnap encrypted online backup service. :-)
What I really meant was "three different general-purpose
archiving/dearchiving tools in the base system". I wasn't
counting ar since I've never seen it used for anything
except libraries, and I wasn't counting unzip since we
don't have a corresponding zip utility in the base system.
