Description:
The options are defined, listed in --help output, but are not actually handled anywhere in the code ...

How to repeat:
Chech arcive_reader.c source

Suggested fix:
Implement actual functionality or at least throw 'not implemented yet'warnings when used

In current mysql-5.5, as far as I can see, force (-f) option is processed and "Not implemented yet" is printed, but repair option is, indeed, listed in --help but totally ignored.

how can an archive table be repaired anyway?  truncate it at point of corruption in the compression stream?
