Here's a proposal for tar-balls to offer for download in the future,
in terms of which repos are in there:
bro-all-a.b.c.tgz (using Bro's version number).
All repos (except bro-scripts.git I guess)
When untar'ing, they'd all extract into the directories the super
module lays out for them (which means it doesn't matter whether one
gets broccoli-x.y.z.tgz on top of broctl-x.y.z.tgz).
We could do our binary packages along a similar structure.[2
 I see the main way to distribute these as indvidually via the
web server. However, seems there's nothign wrong with also offering
them all at once for download.
 Distributions will want it separeately per repo, but for, e.g.,
an MacOS package, it seems more convinient to have few pieces to
