All files on my /pub/... hierarchy are simultaneously available via both
HTTP and FTP using the same path.  Since the FTP server is also capable
of the usual get-a-tree-in-tar-format kind of request, you can get the
whole archive in one big request via ftp.

On the other hand, I think Andy Norman has the mbox archive at HP and
can make that available to people who ask.
