I haven't actually tried it but I'm assuming it's the same file as what
the human knowledge compression people (http://prize.hutter1.net/) are
supplying, with the latter just being truncated to the first hundred
megs. If it is, it's an easily understandable xml file. Whole thing
doesn't seem that big either if you restrict to current articles (2.8
gigs compressed for the english version).
