	Grief - these are random, depend on the virus checker and are simply
impossible to guard against.

	Yep - but without some hard-core details ~impossible to defend against.
Many virus checkers do the moral equivalent of:

	"can we find these sequence of bytes: 0x13 0x67 0xfe 0x78"

	if so it must be the foo virus ! ;-)

	unfortunately, given the number of these things, the short sequences
that are often checked for etc. etc. the # of false-positives is really
rather high, and it's unclear if we can really work around them. Then
again, the way compression works - hopefully if we just change the
version number to rc3 - perhaps it'll perturb the bit causing the
grief ;-)
