SafeTarFile does not pass the existing tests, mainly because the existing file Lib/test/tarfiletestdata/testtar.tar seems to be "unsafe", producing errors like these:

tarfile.SecurityError: <TarInfo 'ustar/blktype' at 0x7fb9119b3bb0>: block device

tarfile.SecurityError: <TarInfo 'ustar/regtype' at 0x7fb9119b3910>: duplicate name

It seems like the solution here is to remove block devices and duplicate names from testtar.tar. However, is this desirable -- do we need to keep these in for the tests for TarFile?
