[tex-live] compressing .afm files

    casual browsing of the source
    tree seems to me a little more common than reading AFM files.

Anyone who uses emacs will get decompression automatically, and I bet a
lot of the people who would be interested in the source use emacs.

And for people who don't use emacs, is typing zmore/zgrep/etc any harder
than typing more/grep/etc?

The need for space seems much more important to me than keeping the
sources uncompressed.
