The node name "Package from Source" is somewhat confusing.  This
command fetches the source from the development repo.  Sometimes a
user will want that, but sometimes a user will want to look at or edit
the source of the current release of the package.

Let's keep these two issues separate:
1) To see the package source files in a repo to edit them.
2) Which version to use.

In other words, there should be a command to check out the current version 
sources, and a command to check out the development version sources.
Or maybe one command that can do either of those two.
