OK, I FTP'd to ftp.tex.ac.uk, logged in as "anonymous",
and was told (amongst other things) that on-the-fly
zip compression was indeed available; it even gave
an example, using the "Rotating" package.  So, armed
with that information, I did the following :

	cd tex-archive
	cd systems
	cd texlive
	get 2008.zip

All seems to be progressing nicely.  I will report
back further when the transfer has completed.
