Each distro has different rules for these, and at least with RPMs,
the transition from a tarball is automatic once you have set up your
master scripts.  I would rather let the distros handle their own
pet conventions and stick to tarballs for the LDP distribution.

Along that line, in creating the samples to take to COMDEX, I grabbed
the HOWTO^2 but the sgml file does not include the screencapture image;
I think as a matter of course, we should ship all docbook files as
tar files which include the images, and for simplicity, ship even
single files as tarballs of one file.
