The SVN route is pretty good, I think.
I initially thought about the "secret" direct link too but that really would ruin his nag system as Philipp mentioned because the direct link would eventually become common knowledge.
I agree that the SVN checkout is probably the best compromise in absence of a direct link to the tarball.
