I agree with Joe. Maybe we should agree/decide on who is the target
audience of these samples. For example, if average developers is the
target audience then they should be able to use svn/cvs and therefore
there should be no need for these zip files. However, if we expect the
target audience not to know how to use svn then I guess we would need
to provide those zip files. But if we do provide them, we must make it
so it is extremely easy to (re)generate them.
