Yes, yes there should. D'oh.


It's fairly big, though, as it's just a package of the git repo. Is
there a ton of value in having smaller zip packages? The download
numbers on them have always been fairly low, so they were dropped for
2.7 in favour of github's automatic zip generation.

The main source is now on https://github.com/ironlanguages/main. I'm
thinking of removing the source tab from CodePlex to avoid confusion,
if that's possible.
