Do you believe that the unzip stuff will really get into Lenny?

I'm asking because the loadlin package used to upload a complete .zip,
but that is useless for the user if he doesn't have unzip to unpack it.
And that being said, I have always been wondering whether we shouldn't
just put loadlin.exe and its manual as loadlin.txt which is a lot easier
to use than having to unpack it first...
