Yes, it is possible.  However, when we asked, people specifically requested
that we parcel it into pieces smaller than one floppy disc.  A month or so
ago I asked if people were interested in a `mega-bundle' with many of the
contibuted packages included, and I received no positive replies.

What is the problem with the present form?  I downloaded it this morning by
about 20 mouse clicks, and you could make a decent ftp client (e.g. ncftp)
grab the whole directory in a single command.
