Hm... I've always thought of /trunk/ as where development happens.
Never considered using /trunk/ for my "stable" branch... and using a
branch for development . It's a good idea... and it solves the zip
download problem rather conveniently (also: without more coding for you,
Matt :-D ) I'll have to give that a shot. This should be written up as
standard practice on: http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/RepositorySetup

... which is how I've been doing it.
