Better yet, self-extracting zip-file. End user doesn't need WinZip (you pay
for WinZip, right? It's only $29, and you use it almost every day. If you
use plain zip files, they might use WinZip forever without ever buying it,
and then you'd feel guilty.) Also, the 'exe' filename extension guarantees
the download dialog will fire. Works if your left-click, right-click, or,
for Mac users, big-fat-button-click.
