I dont think there's any. What you call 'sane' is what bitbucket used
to do. The problem is that it is very easy to change a tag in
mercurial (or git for that matters). Then there's no 'obvious' way of
doing. Either you do project-tag.tgz and this is inconsistant when the
tag change, or you do project-hash.tgz which is probably the best to
do but is not very pretty and not source-distro friendly. Same goes
for dirname once extracted.
Source-distro expect tarball names and extracted dir to contain the
version name.

Mercurial's own http stuff does the same, see for examples, the
buttons on top-right of
which is the page for the tag 'release-0.4'
