ha bloody ha ha.

my department pays for data transferred out of tex.ac.uk; i can't afford
to encourage everyone in the world who can't drive wget to flock to my
site, or my site will be shut down in perpetuity.

i have suppressed the inappropriate use of on-the-fly compression for
the texlive directories.

sure, help users who need help, but don't expect backdoors that you've
discovered to remain open.

i guess i ought, when i've read the appropriate documentation, to switch
off dynamic archiving altogether.
