It's not like you can't checkout the tag and use git archive to
generate a zip, tar.gz or any archive of your choice.
Also, if you need to refer to the source, why not simple have a git submodule.
git repo foobar.
foo bar relies to meego-super-module tag 2.0, so have your source
pull the appropriate tag and treat it as a module. I'm not sure why
this is such a big deal either ways.
