You can always put the header in a separate file (a different one
from the meta-data, because you obviously don't want dynamically-sized data in there)
and put everything together into a tar-file.

Seriously guys, get a repository and an issue tracker for that project
and stop using this list for development. Status reports are fine,
but the details of your discussions are of no relevance to the whole list.

Enjoy your weekend,
