Actually, such re-releases are quite rare.  Fileutils is an exception,
rather than a rule.

Each zip file has a time stamp, so it should be very easy to know
whether you need an update: just look at the *.zip files you have
locally, and compare with what's on SimTel.  Alternatively, make sure
you download every package as soon as it is announced, and you will
always have the latest binaries of everything.

So what practical problems do you have?  I fail to see the grave
problems that would require such non-trivial changes.  (The Mini-FAQ
is maintained manually, which makes it a pain to add the info you are
asking for.)
