Inside the tar file?  Use tarfileset to collect your files, you have
the option to specify the uid there.

Bad luck 8-(

We are using Java's built-in classes to write the gzip files.  If
these classes create the files the wrong way, there is nothing much we
can do.

We could reimplement the GZIPOutputStream class, we are already doing
so for ZipOutputStream.  Want to lend a hand?

Again, tarfilest is your friend (but only if you use the CVS version
of Ant).
