Question ? Why has tar archiver been removed from the backup-script feature ?  

 The tar archive is a nice tool, used by many people - however has some specific restrictions.

As afio comes in with real-nice support for exclude files/firectories xxx, nocompress file with extension xxx etc. and compression of files before writing them into an archive - some of these features would have required to be explicitely programmed - which would have bloated the script - which IMHO I kept as simple as possible.
