But the version-specific URL is going to be invalidated so quickly that
most of the time (probably, for most people) the direct link won't work.
I mean, I understand the convenience of being able to wget the zipfile
without having to read a web page, but it's only convenient if it works.

Given the fine granularity of the version numbers, it seems likely that
Richard Hipp updates the "latest amalgamation" zipfile fairly often. We
could ask him to keep the old versions in place, but that seems like a
lot of trouble to go through, given that the latest amalgamation is
fairly easy to find on the web page once one is told what to look for.
