Well, that's not my opinion.  IMO, what's broken is

(1) an http tool like wget that by default ignores what the http
protocol is telling it.

(2) github that doesn't document their download api.

(3) projects using stupid tags like 'elementary-xfce-0.11' or 'v0.1.2'
or 'Release_3.2.1' instead of just '1.2.3'
