Let's see: my filelist is 369kB uncompressed. If we start using (EB|X)ML, I
imagine it'll only become bigger, due to added data (actually, if it'd only
carry the same information as is in the list now [filenames and sizes],
EBML might be a bit smaller). No matter which compression you use, the
filelist will become smaller, and that is the whole point - have as small
filelists as possible, which carry as much data as possible. It's always
faster to upload 85kB than 369kB. (This reminds me, did anybody look into
7Z for compression :)

It ain't necessarily so.
