Can we fix extraction based on lookups of user/group so that the
nonsense that Arch has been subjected to via systemd-sysusers can be
fixed? This should be a simple matter of calling
archive_read_disk_set_standard_lookup(archive) prior to extraction. I
think agregory has a branch that he's been working on to do this.
