[Mono-list] Tar library for mono - SharpZipLib doesnt preserve attributes/ownership of files

are there any solutions to create a tar.gz file from a directory under Mono
other than running system command 'tar'?
I tried SharpZipLib but it doesnt seem to preserve file attributes (all
files in created tar file are +x and owned by root regardless of their
original setting) - i used sharpziplib compiled from source under windows
(VS2008)... i dont see any code that would handle ownership or attribute
preservation logic... Anyone knows any details on this?
