I was thinking we could have a generic FTP updater (rather
FTP-with-signature updater).  It would match packages whose source is
fetched over ftp already, or packages that have a special 'ftp-url
property, say.

How does that sound?

In the meantime your 3 patches LGTM.  You can definitely apply #2 and
#3; as for #1, I think it’s fine, and we can always remove it when we
have a more generic updater.
