What about just having command line (non-emacs) tool? I'm thinking
something inspired by Archlinux's `makepkg -g`, which downloads the
sources based on the current build script and outputs something that can
just be copied into it. I don't feel I have the full picture re: how
that interacts with the macro's checking, but we could fall back on the
user supplying URLs.
