It's generally considered to be rude to post UUENCODED files to
reflectors. Why? Because a lot of people pay for their news/mail
feeds, and they generally don't like downloading megabytes of data
that they're not interested in receiving. :-)

The appropriate mechanism for distributing files is to place them in a
public FTP location, and then posting a note to the list indicating
where the files can be found.
