May I also suggest that the download be named something other than
latest.zip/latest.tar.gz? Because then one 'latest' looks exactly the
same as another! I ended up with 2 version of latest.zip and one
latst.tar.gz all different sizes and no idea which was the one to use.

I understand about keeping a consistent url, but perhaps use Apache
re-write to 302 to the real one eg.
Redirect seeother /latest.zip  

Redirect seeother /latest.tar.gz
