    Change tar owner and group to just 0
    It seems like some tar versions don't like the name:id form for
    --owner and --group.  The closest known anonymous user being 0 (root),
    that seems to be the most appropriate user/group to assign ownership
    to.  It matters very little when unpacking either way.
