So they are! Funny, I could have sworn the .template files used to be
text. Presumably my fractured imagination.
Further suggestion then - could an un-gzipped version be made available
by rsync *only*.
Output of "gzip --help" on sid:
--rsyncable Make rsync-friendly archive
Maybe this feature could be of interest here? I haven't experimented
with the effects myself yet though.
