I don't but I suggest modifying rip.r:
It should watch a special directory,
polling every number of seconds.
You can call it "compressed/", for eg.
When you upload some files into this
directory, they are noticed by rip.r
and moved to another directory to
be decompressed ("decompressed/"),
and the compressed archive deleted.
You then change directory to
to get the files you
are interested in.
So the overall process for the user is:
1) upload to one location
2) download from another location
You have just one program running on
the server, too.
