Put the archives in a mode-711 directory, and give them easily
predictable names (e.g. based on the date).  Then tell people to
download ".../whatever/samba-devel-prealpha-unstable-YYMMDD.tar.gz".
Document this where only a dedicated soul would find it, like right next
to the CVS instructions.  Assuming that the firewall isn't completely
intrusive, people can just download the .tar.gz file by specifying its
name in full.
