Having the email form is just so we can stop our servers getting crushed
if we get slashdotted (we rate limit sending of the response emails).

We were figuring that most people would only want to download one of the

Why not use bittorent? You don't need to fill in any forms, and it
doesn't cost us $$$ to serve you the bits.
