    684287622  TeXLive-2005-install.iso.bz2 (4.2872%)
    682955930  TeXLive-2005-install.iso.zip	(4.4735%)

For the record, bz2 does substantially better on the live iso:
 1355640832 texlive2005-live-20051102.iso
  615288756 texlive2005-live-20051102.iso.bz2
  658347704 texlive2005-live-20051102.iso.zip

Not surprising -- when there is real compression to be done, bz2 wins,
but when nearly everything is already compressed, it doesn't matter.

I'll think about making live.7z some time, which will probably compress
better and decompress faster than bz2 ...

For now, I've made zips on tug.org for both live and inst.  After all
that ...
