Estimated to three packages, two in gx86, one in betagarden. All
of them grabbing zipballs from github, so can be easily changed to
download tarballs instead.

Do you see a reason why they should use zipballs which are larger
and require adding unzip to DEPEND rather than tarballs? The only
reason for that I can see is that they copy-pasted the 'download' URI
from somewhere where author posted only zipball link.

It's for a sake of code & work amount. And zip support in Gentoo is not
obligatory. You need to add unzip to your DEPEND yourself.

Your previous implementation was against the KISS principle.
