New: Download a repository revision as a zip file

You can now download directly from a project's repository page

One of today's crop of new features:

The repository page for a project, which shows you the current state and history for the source code of that project (like this for example) now includes a link to download the revision you are currently looking at, directly, as a zip file.

This is a quick way to get a snapshot of the source code from a repository -- unlike a full clone of the repository, you don't need to use a Mercurial tool to do this and you only get the version you asked for, not the whole history.

(Of course if you plan on doing any development work on the code, you'll still want to start by cloning the repository rather than just downloading a snapshot!)
