Sure, I'd use an archive if the files were large, but the largest in
this case is only 6k which isn't really a big deal (even for Geir
on-a-plane).

Of course, I realise that browsing is just a more convinient form of
"downloading".  But, IMHO, the 85% saving per download on attachments
this size is insignificant.  The real saving obtained by using a zip
file comes from the fact that fewer people will bother to download it!
This is a saving that I think the project would be better to manage
without. ;-)

Regards,
 Mark.
