I think it might be a good idea to provide a better way
to download scripts for those who package things for a
given distro. Right now, the steps of upgrading a
packaged vim script are as follows:

find numeric source ID for new version
wget/snarf/curl URL with source ID
rename file "download_script.php?src_id=XYZ" to the
real filename (e.g. foo.zip)
package as normal

It might be nice to automate the file naming and source
ID lookup using simple url rewriting:
i.e.
http://www.vim.org/scripts/download/<scriptname>/<version>
produces a download for scriptname-version.vim or whatever.

Just a thought.
