Is there a need for that? Considering that I can't name any snapshot
provider which does offer .zip but doesn't offer .tar*, and the fact
that .tar* is the format preferred for Linux and smaller, is there
a need for that support?

As the doctext states, I'm open to implementing support for new formats
but I'd rather wait with that till it's needed for anything. Tarballs
are easy to handle, zips are not.
