Does anyone else see any value in symlinks on the server that would
point to the latest directory/builds?  IMO it could simplify project
documentation and would simplify scripting solutions to pull the the
latest version programmatically on non-*buntu platforms.

The most recent example would be:
daily-latest/ --> daily-20120724/
chirp-daily-latest-installer.exe --> chirp-daily-20120724-installer.exe
chirp-daily-latest-win32.zip --> chirp-daily-20120724-win32.zip
chirp-daily-latest.app.zip --> chirp-daily-20120724.app.zip
chirp-daily-latest.tar.gz --> chirp-daily-20120724.tar.gz

Under this model this kind of URL would always be valid:

This all assumes the dailies are published by a script that would be
amenable to automagically updating the symlinks (delete the current
links and make new ones to the new dailies).  If it's done by hand
then return on invested effort would be much less.
