Unfortunately, this is of no use for us packagers because we are banned by 
policy (and at least in Fedora, this is enforced by the build system) from 
downloading stuff during build. We can only work from tarballs. (If we want to 
package a snapshot, we have to check it out, tar it, then package the 
resulting tarball.)
