[Rd] Compression of largish expression array files in the DAAGbio/inst/doc directory?

The inst/doc directory of the DAAG package has 6 files coral551.spot, ... that are around 0.85 MB each. It would be useful to be able to zip then, but that as matters stand interferes with the use of the Sweave file that uses them to demonstrate input of expression array data that is in the "spot" format. They do not automatically get unzipped when required. I have checked that read.maimages (in limma) does not, unless I have missed something, have an option for reading zipped files. Is there any way to get around this without substantially complicating the exposition in marray-notes.pdf (also in the inst/doc subdirectory)?
