Add tar.gz and tar.bz2 as upload filetypes

Linux archives use tar.gz and tar.bz2 instead of .zip or .rar

Can these be allowed with the same limits the .ZIP format is limited by? There aren't any security issues with gzip/bzip2 or rar software, as there isn't a platform wide autorun as there is in .zip files.

P.S. Thanks for adding .hex and .bin as types!

I may as well go ahead and ask for .c, .h, and .asm files to be added as well, with a MIME type of TEXT, so people don't need to spread their code across multiple posts.
