The data sheet viewer so far only knew how to handle PDFs.
Alas, some companies wrap data sheet PDFs in ZIPs, placing
them beyond dsv's reach.
I've now added PDF in ZIP support as well: if a data sheet
record in the bookshelf file has the form
D: url-of-zip path-of-pdf-in-zip
with url-of-zip ending in .zip with any capitalization,
then dsv will first download and cache the .zip file and
then extract the requested PDF.
Note that there must be exactly one space between the URL
and the path. Neither tab nor newline are allowed.
This means we can finally do this:
D: http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/usb_20_071012.zip usb_20_071012/usb_20.pdf
dsv lives here:
