It is easy to differentiate between Linux, windows and Mac, but it's
not that easy to distinguish between linux deb and linux rpm (any
suggestions on that one?)

So using that kind of detection would mean to split linux in two
controls - one for the OS itself, and another one for the package
format. Not sure whether that is a win or not.

I added detection for OS and default to rpm for linux for now...

Added as well. (not sure whether there needs to be a mapping of
browser-reported locale to locale identifiers used by LO)

A single, big fat download button is hard to do, when you need to
download multiple files in the usual case...
But if you got a suggestion...
(one can always style the result as big button using css)
