i would like to attach small dataset with sqlite database to tutorial i am
writing. .tar.gz file is 120KB. i can find some place to host the file.
but others probably do not have such possibility. and on other side..
it would be nice to have everything in one place :)
speaking about evil.. i mean security :) not sure about that but mediawiki
hopefully won't try to display gz/bz2/zip files, so shall be quite safe.
anyway, if you decide to not allow gz/zip files, then i would like to
notice that upload wiki pages claim the opposite in case of .tar.gz :)

imho, pdf/ps/eps/svg would be usesful, i.e. to provide nicely scalable and
printable maps in tutorials.. or at least pdf/svg as ps/eps can be
converted without major hassle into pdf.
