Perhaps the confusion issue could be addressed by keeping the split
sources in a separate subdirectory:

	pub/source/v.8.0.1/
		postgresql-8.0.1.tar.bz2
		postgresql-8.0.1.tar.bz2.md5
		postgresql-8.0.1.tar.gz
		postgresql-8.0.1.tar.gz.md5
		split-tarballs/
			postgresql-base-8.0.1.tar.bz2
			postgresql-base-8.0.1.tar.bz2.md5
			etc...

I suspect the demand for the split tarballs is mighty low nowaways,
but it's probably not zero yet.

Also: I notice that the README file that's supposed to tell people about
the split-tarball scheme is not present in any of the recent-version
subdirectories, so it's no wonder that they are confused.
