In the case of the Untar task I think a note for this single task is
sufficient. We already have other places where the behavior depends on
the VM (javac will use modern on JDK 1.3, javadoc has a much richer
feature set on Java 2 ...) and AFAIK they are all documented.

I should have changed the documentation for Untar myself but feel free
to jump in.
