Klaus, et al:

I hope this will generate more discussion so we can separate rumors 
from experience, which is why I started a new thread.

I can only tell you that for some time I uploaded Mac files as .seas 
and found it to work fine.  Then someone mentioned it wasn't 100% 
safe, and subsequently one or more people reported problems with 
downloads; so I switched to BinHexed archives and no one has reported 
any problems since.
