Paul, the problem is not with the server side method being used.  Both
JSPs and PHP can render anything they wish to the browser.  It is a
problem with the browser defaulting the filename to the last section of
the URI.


Now I could change the URI for each module, but then I would have to
make my web server treate .zip files specially, passing any ZIP file
extension to a servlet.  Not sure how we can do this.  I could
dynamically create a 'zip' servlet in a new package on the fly for each
request to handle that download, but that sucks.

I'm hoping for some magic that someone knows about that I can return to
the browser to force it's download filename.

Not sure.  Never used it.  Maybe you could use it to port InstallMgr to
linux. :)
