They're definitely not that much larger and can certainly make things easier.  Online Bible uses a program called PowerArchiver http://www.powerarchiver.com/ for all their modules.  It will unzip the files then run an included setup program, so it acts as a module self-installer.

It's really not an option for us because you have to create the archives manually and everything we do is created automagically.  There may be a similar tool for Linux that could be scripted.
