Yes, that is the torrent I meant. Maybe we should put the same
torrent entry on mininova... it sounds less pirated...
Today I see an unsettling comment on the .lzma torrent:
Compression is done with LZMA. But 7zip will *not* read the file, as
far as I can tell. So the implementation of LZMA compression is a
little obscure, at least for Windows users.
I haven't tested this myself, and I don't know what version of 7zip the
commentator was using.
