 That's what this ticket is about.
 If a tag is deleted, rather than just being zero'd out, then the zip
 remains untouched.

 I remain in the camp that we shouldn't expend effort on removing the zips
 in those cases. Especially not when the ZIPs are not linked to from

 (security, copyright, etc) and the zips should be nuked too.

 The data is still available in SVN though, just not visible via the HTTP
 In most cases, having a ZIP still be available is not a huge concern in my
 mind. Except as mentioned above, cases of Copyright and/or IP issues.
