Why is hgweb serving the gz and bz2 archives using the 'application/x- 
tar' mime type ? This causes various problems depending on the user  
agent. For exemple, downloading tip.tar.gz with Safari will produce  

Shouldn't the mime types be 'application/x-tar-gz' and 'application/x- 
bzip-compressed-tar' ?
