Yes, I agree.  I should have done this.

At this point, since there is nothing working to "get", I don't think 
we'll provide a tarball of any sort.  But perhaps once things start 
building properly, we should consider making releases available in an 
alternative package.  This makes sense.  We'll need some storage options 
that, at this point, I don't think mercurial provides, but perhaps the 
Trac system does. I'll have to investigate the options.
