RFC: Dropping gzip'd docs on the FTP site

Hi chaps,

At the moment the docs on the FTP site are available in gzip, bzip2, and
zip format.

How do people feel about dropping support for gzip?  FreeBSD's shipped
with bzip for a while, and the zip format covers platforms where gzip or
bzip isn't common.

Support for building gzip'd docs would remain in the tool chain, I just
want to remove the format when the docs are built for the FTP site.
