I already upload .tds.zip files since you are maintaining them.  This
is also the least error-prone way to create a CTAN package which can
be used by TeX Live and MikTeX because the stuff in the vntex svn
repository is TDS compliant already.

A flatter tree might be more convenient for browsing, but I don't
see much benefit.  If I upload a tree for browsing and a .tds.zip
file, which one would you check for changes?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
