I'm not going to make issue of this (I do think that there are more 
important issues), but at [1] you are able to download directories. They 
actually seem to limit downloading to fairly low-level directories, not 
giving the opportunity to download a tarball of the entire repository 
[2]. BTW, I got this address from a discussion in trac's trac available 
at [3], but I am definitely not an expert on Trac, so there might be 
some other hacks behind this.
