How exact? As /cgi-bin/unarch? its fine. ->
/cgi-bin/unarch?<real filename>
Do you see other things too ?

I was looking there, but I don't understand:
How is the AddHref for .Z (is it AddHref / .Z)

I don't know, but it would be fine if you have parts of the archives
where you want to interpret files with the same suffix in a different
manner. I don't see it at the moment but, if isn't a great think it
gives you more flexibility.

Perhaps I don't understand right LinkIcons - I see only the same
reference on the icon as on the filename. If it is so I could miss
this feature. I would reserve the Icon reference for a different
reference as in AddHref.
