I think I like your gzip method best, as then I can controll the 
decompression in Revolution.   I'm still having some trouble getting the decompressed file 
to be usable, however.   So far, this part gets the file and decompresses it:


put decompress(URL "http://www.librarytools.com/InstallAIM4.7.gz") into URL 
"binfile://InstallAIM4.7"


But unfortunately what comes back isn't usable.   It does appear to be the 
right file-size, however, so I think I'm close.   I have a feeling this is one 
of those Mac OS X resource-fork issues.
