Applets and Pack200 Format

Hi all,

I'm wondering whether someone has managed to download applets which use the new compression format Pack200? According to Java 5.0 doc java plugin should support this format and automatically unpack the applet.jar.pack.gz file on the client machine. I understand that there has to be a servlet on the server which handles the request. Are there any changes necessary in the web.xml?
