Apparently gitorious and github are in a competition to see which one
can braindeadify download links the most.  Neither of those are giving
me good files, and if I click on them in a browser, I get suggested to
try a different link, and neither of those give me good files either.

If you can send/attach real tarballs to bypass the braindead, I'll be
happy to put them in git master.  :-)
