Would it be possible to also offer a compressed version of these files
(update_excuses.html, update_output.txt, etc)? Most browsers can handle
uncompressing these on the fly and it makes accessing these lists MUCH
faster. As a porter I often use update_excuses for tracking down
packages that are out of date (on alpha) for longer than normal (usually
indicating a problem that can't be handled by the build daemon), and
hence look at that list quite regularly.
