.jar as a valid upload for some sections

An Idea

Some sections get .exe files as their upload, so I see no reason .jars shouldn't get the same treatment for those sections. If anything .jars are safer since they're easier to reverse-engineer and inspect. Otherwise, They're the same as a .exe but just specifically for Java.

One could say security, but once again .jars are more easily reverse-engineered and inspected, so if a .jar was a virus a Java coder could easily read the code and see that, while .exes are much harder to do this with.
If security is a concern with this, the same argument applies to being able to directly upload .exe files, yet those are allowed and have rarely created issues. And .zipping the .jar doesn't make it any more secure, it just adds another annoying step to both uploading and downloading.

... And that's why I think sections that allow .exe files should also allow .jars!
