Wow. I think I'm more confused than before that answer, even :-).

How does the zipping method imply any changes other than the zipping
method? Is there something about zipfiles that forces us to make
changes to the software being packaged?

Not sure how using trunk for the release solves the problem (but that
may be because I don't understand what the problem is). Anyway, we
Shouldn't Go There. Releases for all platforms should come from the
release branch, except for testing releases which are not meant for
long-term distribution.

Hmm, if I understood the problem, maybe I'd understand how it will be
solved with 1.1.0 :-)...
