[pypy-issue] [issue1044] Use a stable and useful name for release tarballs and directories

New submission from Dirkjan Ochtman <dirkjan at ochtman.nl>:
In 1.7, the tarball was called release-1.7.tar.bz2 and it contained a directory
called pypy-pypy-release-1.7. In 1.8, the tarball was called release-1.8.tar.bz2
and the directory was called pypy-pypy-2346207d9946.
It would be helpful if the naming were stable. Preferably, the tarball should
just be called pypy-1.8.tar.bz2, and the directory should just be called
pypy-1.8. Small deviations are fine, but including the version tag in the
directory name, for example, is a little painful for packagers.
