It lacks show the hash and version (which is 0.9.1?) of Opa. With the
recently nasty hacked in github? It's not exactly a trust source to
download because it does not provide hash/signed tarball. If you
commit something in this tag and the tarball will be changed.

I mean by an explicit link on opalang.org get.xmlt page like something
opalang-0.9.1.tar.gz (or tar.bz2 or whatever).
