[arch-general] Using Recoll to index tar.gz files

I'm trying to get Recoll to index either tar or tar.gz files without 
success. Per the instructions on Recoll's website I added the
filter rcltar to the filters folder and modified my mimeconf file to 
include the following line:

application/x-tar = execm rcltar

Nothing works. It doesn't find text that is included in any tar or 
tar.gz file. It will work correctly on other compressed file formats 
such as zip and rar. Just not tar or tar.gz.

Is there anyone else here that uses Recoll on tar or tar.gz files? If 
so, what's your secret?
