Where is the problem with that?  Allow for fallback sites to be

Something along the lines of Debian's "apt". It is such a wonderful
tool. We could also try to have some sort of dependency check like apt
does. It sure helps people wanting to extend Emacs without having to
download, compile, file the missing package and go through that
loop... I keep promoting Debian and find it's "apt" to be the selling
point with administrators!
