** [tickets:#6595] Prevent spiders from requesting tarballs**

The following are examples of spiders requesting tarball creation.  This is unnecessary and
a waste of resources.  We should make it not possible.  We already have `rel=nofollow` but
that apparently isn't working. I think the best solution is to require the URL to be a POST.

"GET /p/z-i/code-0/208/tarball HTTP/1.0" 200 16400 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; bingbot/2.0;
"GET /p/jhotdraw/svn/729/tarball HTTP/1.0" 200 17834 "-" "msnbot/0.01 (+"
"GET /p/fourpane/git4pane/ci/ec65df3a5ff2ec7be011c0722286e766c2b76d94/tarball HTTP/1.0" 200
18137 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MJ12bot/v1.4.3;"
"GET /u/lluct/me722-cm/ci/0aa649648a00979ad6ca9e9d61df4e44eb694259/tarball?path=/external/clang
HTTP/1.0" 200 17918 "-" "YisouSpider"
