Perhaps once again I wasn't clear enough - I *don't want* .zip
archives, too.
All I wanted to point out was, that it doesn't help to use .tar.gz
archives to avoid problems with WinZIP, because WinZIP can deal with
.tar.gz and .tgz ! And if users didn't configure WinZIP as appropriate,
they will run into troubles.

Want to say sorry, too.
