Interesting, but I don't think the files are actually double-gzipped. If
I download with
wget in Cygwin or Unix, the file is 226753 bytes and singly gzipped.

However, if I download the same file with Firefox in Windows, then it's
226782 bytes and double gzipped. So maybe it's something in the browser
or server setup?
