I meant a copy of what you get when you check out the Python
CVS tree wrapped into a .tar.gz file. The size of the above
archive (16MB) suggests that a lot more is going into the
.tar.gz file. A .tar.gz of the CVS checkout is around 4MB in
size. Looks like we still need to do something after all ;)
