I have added support for a simple source string as in the first example.
I left the support for a direct translation of origin expressions
unchanged, because I’m not sure yet how to express this.

So, right now we can do either

  "source": "mirror://gnu/hello/hello-2.10.tar.gz",


  "source": {
    "method": "url-fetch",
    "uri": "mirror://gnu/hello/hello-2.10.tar.gz",
    "sha256": {
      "base32": "0ssi1wpaf7plaswqqjwigppsg5fyh99vdlb9kzl7c9lng89ndq1i"

I’m open to simplifying this further.  What do other people think?
