I personally am not but one of my co-workers is. He has most all the file
formats prioritized rather low as not to affect his web browsing. He has HTML
prioritized above JPG, GIF, and FLASH which he claims makes the important part
of the webpage (text) more responsive. He asked me for the ZIP and RAR because
he wanted to drop archive downloads below everything else.

I think we should. With the thousands of Sveasoft firmware subscribers out
there I'm sure there are plenty of users who like/use the file formats and will
never post to this list. It seems to me that since file format patterns are
very small, relatively static, and generally easy to update/maintain there isn't
a good reason not to have them/support them.
Anyone else have any thoughts?
