Like this? 

-c, --create               Create the archive. When the path specified by -f, --file
                           contains a path, missing parent directories will also be created
-f, --file=FILE            The archive file name. When omitted, either stdin or
                           stdout is used based on the operation. Missing parent
                           directories of the file name path will be created

Perhaps, only adding it to `-c, --create` suffices. Having it also on `-f, --file` may confuse users, as this option is used all operation modes.

Yes. Will create PR for this.
