Yep, I'm not an expert, but we push tar.gz and .zip distributions in OODT, and
then we have specialized assembly.xml descriptors in downstream OODT components
that depend on the tarballs, and Maven will go and get them remotely. 

Paul Ramirez knows a ton about this in OODT: I've mainly just been a watcher of
his "Maven magic" :) But, I do know they are useful, at least to us in OODT, and
wanted to mention it.
