Hrm. This isn't working here... I get this error when I hit vim:

"tar: unrecognized option `--strip-path=1'
Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information."

Looking at tar --help I see the following:

--strip-components=NUMBER   strip NUMBER leading components from file

Is that what you meant?
