Since the column header clearly says "Download", I think it is very
confusing to fill it with other information. I also don't see the point
in showing arbitrary information just to fill the gap. So +1 to removing
the column altogether when snapshots are disabled. The only thing I am
not sure about is whether dropping the column breaks the design since we
use that 4-column layout throughout the whole summary page.
