Forgive my intrusion, but is the assumption that the user 
will *always* need to read the manual to figure out how to 
add symbols?

I would hope that this is one of the core points of the 
exersize - to work towards a day where a user does not need 
to read the manual for something so basic.

Eventually a library manager is neccessary to reach that 
point - so zipped is not a problem anyway... I'm only 
asking about the long-term goals that guide changes. Maybe 
learning curve for new users is not a concern?
