Heheh.  :-)

Yes, exactly.  Now ‘package-with-source’ inserts an “inert”
<downloaded-file> record as the source of the package.  The file is
actually downloaded when that <downloaded-file> object is “lowered”,
which happens when the package itself is lowered to a derivation.

Thanks for the review!
