    initial v1  
    1 As I wrote on sage-devel, we could keep supporting this package if it were repackaged as a `.tar.<whatever compression method works best>`, and we added an appropriate `build/pkgs/polytopes_db_4d` for it.  We would then want to move it to a standard location on the mirrors, not under "spkg/huge".  That, ''or'' leave it under "spkg/huge" (if there is some advantage to that) but modify `sage-download-file` to be able to find tarballs under that path on the mirrors.
