You might get push back about having to change naming schemes.

I’m interested in a list of all current and past releases for my project.
I was trying to figure out how to mine archive.a.o or the svn log for it.
I’d be willing to maintain an xml file like in DOAP or elsewhere of not
just the last, but all releases and links to their downloads with
“friendly” names for the releases.  Then reporter.a.o could grab from that.
