I just wanted to note that if you install the downloadthemall plugin for
firefox, and open downloadthemall on the download page, you have an
option to download archive files. These are .zip, .gzip. tar files, and
it provides the functionality you're looking for.
Otherwise, you could download the page with python and use a regex to
pull out all the relevant links. Heck, I imagine you could download the
page with wget and use grep to find the ftp:\\ prefix and have just
about all of them.
