Tarball naming (-nodeps or -withdeps)

I think we should, instead of producing tarballs named:

subversion-1.3.0-nodeps.tar.bz2
subversion-1.3.0.tar.bz2

... we should produce tarballs named:

subversion-1.3.0.tar.bz2
subversion-1.3.0-withdeps.tar.bz2

This accomplishes two things:

(1) Shifts the emphasis on which is the primary version to the
without-deps version - i.e. what we produce, rather than what we
produce, plus an assortment of other stuff people could really easily
get separately.

(2) I'd like to hope that at some point in the future, we could stop
shipping dependencies entirely. When this happens, it will be less
confusing if we can simply stop shipping -withdeps tarballs, rather than
stopping shipping -nodeps tarballs whilst then changing the content of
the 'plain' tarballs to not contain deps.

Max.
