Agreed. That's why we do it already. :)

Search dir-spec.txt for ".z".

(We use zlib, not gzip, for portability reasons. But it's close enough.)

Also, almost nobody fetches the v1 directory anymore (the big one you
describe above). Most people (I hope) are using the v2 directory design
at this point, which was introduced in Tor 0.1.1.x.
