Archiving DOS/Win32 filsystem flags (system/hidden/...) with tar

Hi all,

star-1.4a05 is out and includes the first free POSIX.1-200x compliant
implementation of extended tar headers.

These tar headers would make it very easy to add support for non-POSIX
filesystem file-flags. The last time I checked, there was no function
that sets or retrieves these flags usinf POSIX names. Is this still correct?
If not, would it be possible to get such a function for star?
