Thanks Marco!

Just thought I would let you know, I downloaded the doc-html.tar.gz, extracted it, and then repacked it using 7-zip.  As a solid archive I got it down to 1.9MB!

7-zip has been around for quite some time. Maybe the releases can drop the standard .zip and replace that with .7z

I noticed most of the .tar.gz is even smaller than the .zip archives.
Just my 2c worth... :-)
