I agree with centralizing the downloads.
Yet, the big files (if they are made available) are a challenge.

It's OK for 'normal' people to have access to the changed files,
yet the 'novice' windows user has problems getting/downloading new

But if the 'on the fly' browser request includes a 'put it in the
installed gnubg directory' of the user, this surely would be great.
