WHAT?? I don't think that there should be .sea files there!

.sea is a MacOS Stuffit Archive.

Also, the .war files are == .jar files which are equal to .zip files. They
are auto "uncompressed" by the servlet engine when it starts up. So, the
file will probably be located in the ROOT.war.

We really should take all of our distributions offline ASAP.
