Are you sure? I think it can be useful, anyway...

And what about distributing a .7z ( file instead of a .zip one? 
The LZMA 7z archive with all 1.4.0a distribution *and* iconv.dll is 1.2MB, 
i.e. much less than the zip archive without iconv.dll. And the 1.4.0a 
distribution alone is compressed in 765KB. The sfx stub is less that 70KB.
