The bad bit, as I was saying on #chicken, is that making and publishing
tarballs automatically isn't very easy unless you run a server.
For example, if you host on Google Code, there's no way to persuade it
to construct a tarball for the central site to pull.  So either I have
to generate a tarball by hand and upload it somewhere else (my web site,
say), or I have to run my own server, which I'm not set up to do.
