LOL! More usefully, you could probably do this with gzip and/or bzip2? A
little bit of creative redirection, and you could do the same trick some
FTP servers do - providing foo.tar, foo.tar.gz and foo.tar.bz2 on the fly
from a single file on disk...

Continuing the new toy theme, there's a rather nice (albeit currently
horribly crude and broken :-) HTTP record/playback tool I've been working
on recently. It was written to automate regression testing on a WWW
application, but could be used for almost any WWW testing. Hopefully I'll
get permission to OS it some time next week - if so, anyone interested??
