LOL! You still have to edit the readme.txt to point to the right tag. 
Also the packing script still isn't published - at least I'm not aware 
of it. Therefore it's quite a bit of random hacking until everything 
works _almost_ the may you want it. (E.g. Images must be .jpg. .JPG does 
not work and all that stuff - I know of a few more small annoyances.) 
Images are still packed into the zip and the way subdirectories are 
handled give me a headache, too. There really isn't much time saved. If 
there would be a reasonable way to host the stuff your self I probably 
would consider that.
