The Distribution tab creates a gzip'ed archive with an, a
version.txt, and a product.dat.  The file product.dat is pretty much a
zexp but it has a couple of extra goodies in it for "configurability".

with the distribution tab.  It's checked in to CVS on a branch.  This
is what was needed for us to start using the distribution tab more
