Sure, but many Windows users will likely use WinZip.

If this is a WinZip issue and not an Emacs packaging issue, then we can perhaps
advise people who use WinZip to right-click and save to disk, renaming the file
from .tar.tar to .tar.gz.

Or we can perhaps advise Windows users to use an alternative to WinZip, such as
7-zip. And mention why.

But without telling them something, I'm guessing that at least some Windows
users will run into a problem. And perhaps some will give up.
