#132 Can you plea make the zip file have one top-level directory?

I just typed unzip "sphpblog-0.7.0.zip" in my home directory, on the incorrect assumption that the zip file would follow the common convention of being all in one directory, e.g., /sphpblog.070" or something like that. Instead, I got a zillion files written into my home directory. Partly this is me being a moron, but it could also have been prevented by using good zip-file planning by putting everything in one top-level directory. Please seriously consider this for future releases.

Thanks,

Joe

    Maybe. I know that is a common convention with .tar files but not so much with .zip.
