I agree, this would be good.
Could you submit a PR for it?
I think we need to change how the dist rule works a bit.
It seems strange to have separate rules like dist-zip.
And it seems strange that these rules are all optional.
Maybe it would be nicer if the user could select at build time:
make dist DISTTYPES='bz2 zip'
The maintainer could set DISTTYPES in Makefile.am to select the
defaults for the package.
That's just brainstorming though.
