Idiots maybe, but not those who are sooo lacking in necessary skills that
they are scared by gzipped tarballs.  Don't forget, these morons are
going to have to know how to get the files to their server, do the
appropriate chmodding, tweak config variables in the script - if you're
clueless enough to be scared off by .tar.gz then you're guaranteed to
fail anyway.
