Using lha is not recommended, since it will almost certainly mangle the
file names.  The best way would be to sort the files into groups belonging
together, and to upload those groups in Lynx format.  I'd like to keep the
archive on well-documented, but since I don't have time to go
through all uploads very carefully, it seems that I'll have to partially
abandon that policy.  Having some files in an unsorted pile is better than
not having them at all.
