Comment (by Ipstenu):

 > If a tag is deleted, rather than just being zero'd out, then the zip
 remains untouched.

 Well that's no good. Most people are going to delete a tag to resolve a
 copyright issue (or in the case of one very silly person, uploading credit
 card information...)

 > 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.

 Right and since there's absolutely no way to easily flag them, that's why
 I think we should auto-delete them. Unless you want to set up a process by
 which I get to contact you/otto every time I close a plugin for
 copyright/security to make sure we don't push bad/illegal/violation code.

 And that's assuming I did that in the first place. Sometimes people catch
 on and fix things themselves.

 I agree that the race condition issue a big one. Would it be possible to
 run a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly script for plugins that compares tags to
 zips, and if there's no tag, nuke the zip? Or would that be worse?
