I  wonder whether  we  can  move away  from  tar.Z  files.
It is redant and  costly:  bandwith  and  even  disk  space is a waste.
We discuused  on the  pache-announce  list, nobody objected; some 
approved  the idea.
Since gzip is  available  eveywhere, why do not we stop  carrying
.tar.Z  file.

Another  point  why we  dont have  pointers  on the  first page  for
perl  and  java  directories.

Tahns  and best  regards
