The aliensong suggested for downloading in the FAQ is .mpeg, not .zip.
The consequence is that the .zip is very likely less well distributed
than the recommended file and thus slower to download, especially
if its located on some low-capability nodes only. I don't think we
have ever seen what really happens with gnunet when some content
is on say 20 nodes simultaneously (a typical real-life p2p situation),
unless every node operator has bothered to dl the .mpeg, which
I think unlikely.

Anyway, improving speed on bandwidth-limited nodes is on the
TODO-list, but apparently we are more interested in playing
around with the GUI. :(
