Sorry, I'm not understanding the distinction. A rearguard tarball 
contains .zi files, and Oracle's Java-based tools accept .zi files. Why 
don't these tools accept the .zi files in a rearguard tarball? In other 
words, goes wrong if you try to use a rearguard tarball with Oracle's 
Java-based tools?
