Do not remove downloads from plone.org

I want to remind everyone that you should never remove or rename a
download once you have uploaded it to plone.org: doing so is likely to
break other peoples setup. This also holds for anything else that change
URLs for released software, such as renaming a release. 

Below is an example of the kind of breakage this causes.
