Allows scanning of *large* tar files.

Project description

In comp.lang.python Terry Caroll stated a memory problem when iterating over the header information of a 4GB tar file. This is because the standard libs tarfile module caches all header blocks which results in linear memory consumption. My module tarfile_scanner solves this problem. Feel free to contact me if you have some questions.
