    1313__Input validation:__ I saw metrics-lib included some packages for compressed file handling so I tried importing from .xz instead of tarball. Some validation of the input archives might be worthwhile. Bad things will happen to the log when this is attempted.

    15 __Parsing archives:__ Parse history doesn't include archives, and archives aren't removed after parsing. DescriptorDownloader cannot now remove the archives (current behavior) because it only considers the recent folder.

    17 __Parsing archives:__ If --single-run or --update-only is used with archives that have ''already been parsed'', they will be parsed again. This leads to a change in the size of the status folder. It becomes smaller for the same number of archive-sourced files. I didn't try to determine the reason for the change at the time. I intend to revisit this potential problem to see if the same thing happens, and why, during recent data re-processing.

It might be interesting if the change also happens during re-processing of recent data (which may happen when restoring a backup of data).
