I think these should have eol-style native in the repository, so that 
you can check them out and have them in your platform's native format. 
When building something that is meant for distribution, one will have to 
make a choice. Seems like a good candidate for your ant trick. :) I 
agree on the "tar.gz is for unix, zip is for windows" line of thinking, 
but since this is not strictly the case, the downloads should be marked
