You could use the ReadmeName directive to add an HTML footer to each
page. This footer could include a hyperlink to a CGI script that
looks at the Referrer: header and does a tar/zip of everything in the
Unfortunately I believe you need to put a symlink to the footer file
in every directory..
Note: This stuff changed immediately after 1.3.6 and you could maybe
circumvent the requirement to put the footer file in every directory
with some fancy mod_rewrite footwork.
