Mr. Bernstein had packaged up the file as a gzipped tarball indeed, but
then his mailer must've wrapped it up in a BinHex wrapper.

I happened to have megatron installed (the excellent mac fileformat
converter part of the netatalk package, more info at
http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/~tombeau/netatalk/) and I pealed of all the
layers. I attached a gzipped copy of the file (no tarbal needed, it is
only one file after all).

Hope this helps!
