no, apart that we want to distinguish platform by extensions and zip is 
likely to be Windows for R.
The other reason is that on mac os x (at the moment) a binary package 
is assumed to have this tar.gz format, I mean for things like 
install.packages() etc on mac os x. R Core is going to make this more 
flexible in R-devel, I mean the R code part to allow for different 
extensions/format with some platform defaults.
