Yes, but if the wiki page had such a link I wouldn't have to bother with
going to another page. Instead, I could immediately get the latest
archive in one go (or, as I do it... copy the URI and use wget). As an
alternative, the link to pub/ could open in a new window? (Although I
don't like that behaviour in general, maybe it's ok here?)
I did just realize that a malicous person could modify that 'latest'-link
to point to some other tar-ball I guess...
Slightly related... to we need MD5-sums for the tar-ball?

I actually tried that link but didn't notice anything... I'll try
installing it again and see what happens....
Hmm, no it doesn't work (in Opera/Linux). There's no new window. Maybe
there should be a text added like:
Then reload this page (a new window should open)

That'd work for me... and the special directive (:AnalyzeSetup:) could
always output something, instead of being silent when disabled.
