Except that the drill holes are too small for half of the regulators & the undersized 
plated ring around the hole will not tolerate any movement of the component before it 
will break.

  I would have thought you would have made these yourself. 

  Personally I never liked to use footprints I have not optimised for the
  process they will go through, but that's me. 

  The TO220 ones definitely exist in the 99SE libraries.

  Anyhow you can find a quick dump here of footprints that might help.

  Or a copy of Brian libraries here may help even more
