You are right; I never took a deep enough look into Automator, but  
the tool On My Command (<http://www.abracode.com/free/cmworkshop/>)  
is also very helpful for this kind of thing, I just should get down  
to write the necessary workflow into a (more or less) clean script  
(it's not that I use this every day, most of the times I am so lazy  
to use the default "Create Archive…" CM entry, not caring for hidden  
OSX files…)
