This is without the redirect.  Its possible github.com has caught on to what we are doing
and is actually trying to help.  Everytime we hit the site they have a record of our
visit, since we advertise the "web client" in the GET header.

Maybe I'm just being optimistic, but 0.05 seconds to fetch a zip file is pretty
exceptional.  Its possible they've made special provisions for us (read caching).
