Good suggestions!  This is why the test tarballs (which I can now say for
certain are NOT final) were published early, to get feedback from
distribution packagers. ;-)

The monolithic tarball is the entire source tree provided in the original
SVN archive structure.  The complete tarball is a collection of all the
smaller module tarballs in one file for easy downloading.

I suppose the traditional packages mentioned above could be provided in
one more tarball.  Of course, that means that everything else should go in
another tarball, which brings up the question of whether or not the
"complete" file should be retained as-is or split into two separate files,
"core" and "extra".
