i don't want to flame or anything, but what's the purpose of this? is
there any program that would make use of such an archive? except that if
you put it out to http then broken out files are browsable, while if you
tar it up (like the rpm guys do with srpm) then the user has to download
the whole source package, even if he/she is only interested in the
buildscript or patches.
