I think the default has to be 0 for consistency with how other empty numeric fields are handled.

In theory spaces and NULs are supposed to be equivalent terminators in numeric fields, but I've just noticed that plexus-archiver is also using leading spaces rather than leading zeros (against the spec), e.g. ' 10422\x00 '.  tarfile currently supports this, which I think is good, so I think the right approach is to lstrip(' ') fields and then treat space as a terminator.
