But that's not enough. The internal links on the static site point to items *past* the tarball filename, like 


If I just replace what's currently a folder with the actual tarball I don't need to do any Apache magic and the file will be in the right place, but you cannot navigate to the release file from within the old.zope.org site anymore. The navigation links there will all break.
