For local viewing the file manager would be usable but it doesn't
handle the 'export a little bit of my hierarchy' bit.  Also, as for
the idea below I don't think it handles moving upd and down the
hierarchy very well.

Yes, I think I tried that a while ago, there's no easy way to navigate
the hierarchy though (if I rmemeber right).

Doesn't handle a *hierarchy* of directories.

Yes, I tried this a while ago but it's still being developed (a good
thing) which might mean it has improved.  I'll try it again, thanks.

I found this too, but it doesn't do compression.  I might investigate
further though as I run a web server already and sort of know how to
do things.
