--- Comment #1 from Denys Vlasenko <vda.linux at googlemail.com> ---
Set EXTRACT_UNSAFE_SYMLINKS=1 for the tar command which extracts something with
potentially unsafe symlinks.
Act of doing so serves as an explicit statement from the user: "Yes, I know
what I'd doing. This tarball is trusted by me".
