The Italian one is probably the worst at the moment, since it has 
hard-coded links (to the Italian mirror; this is a relatively recent 
change to avoid depending on the changing mirror situation), hard-coded 
version numbers in the download page and even a hard-coded directory for 
the download page.

While I see it changing (at the very least, the download link will be 
pointing to the SF/MirroBrain URL and not to a specific mirror), I'm not 
sure that the convenience of an API to generate links will always 
outweigh the added complexity: a link to the 'latest' version would have 
to be changed, for example, if a version-specific security patch is 
released, like it happened for 3.3.0.
