I was happy about the nice new features to index ftp archives directly
per http (AddIcon, ReadmeName, AddType, ...), but the uncompressing of
files like *.dvi.Z doeesn't work. Now I saw your patch and nothing
is better. In the sources now I found the
AddEncoding x-compress Z
and now it works. Please put it in the sample srm.conf and in the
documents or is it there?
