[plt-scheme] Distribution package size ...

In an email long ago, I'd complained about a 7MB minimum size for the "distributable" version
of a gui executable generated via the "Create executable ..." menu command in
DrScheme. (on Win32)

I just realized that unzipping the resultant zip file and zipping it again using, say,
a command-line zip yields a file that's under 4MB!

Maybe the zip compression in DrScheme doesn't use a good compression setting?
