 Replying to [comment:9 Ipstenu]:
 > 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?

 Much worse.

 If anything happens here, I guess it'd have to be something like this to
 avoid the most common race conditions:
  - When a commit deleting a tag occurs
   - Queue a cron task to check that the tag really doesn't exist an hour
   - In Cron: If no tag. Remove zip

 The SVN Watcher cannot handle this case at present, and the zip management
 stuff includes no ability to delete due to never-deleting being a design
 goal of the new zip storage system.
