Tape retensioning

I think that since there are only a few basic kinds of cartridge tape
interfaces out there, and since 386 UNIX binaries are pretty darn
portable across sibling platforms, it might be a nice idea to compile
and UUENCODE a set of simple binaries for commands that do NOTHING but
retension (for instance) the tape.  Then users without the development
set could grab the appropriate mini-tool and use it.  (Assuming they
got UUDECODE running on a non-development system.)

At minimum, a set of retension sources would be good.
