Brian sent an email about space on jakarta.apache.org/x2.  Well I think
zip/arc/gz/and derivatives have been out for like at least like 15 years so I
thinks its safe to not release a straight tar (uncompressed tape archive).  So
lets remove that from the dist and cut that 20mb per release on disk space
(sheesh) shall we?  Anyone who complains will get a *I have little sympathy for
those who are too lazy to download zip/gzip since they're free* from me.
