cute way to distribute software via tar link on web page

this gets the tar info from a web site via port 80, pipes it 
to tar which in turn expands and stores it 

wget -O- http://status.calibre-ebook.com/dist/src | tar xvz
Stolen from calibre installer page for linux os.
remainder of install if one uses the above:
cd calibre*
sudo python setup.py install
