Of course not, but that wouldn't work with Portage either.  Remember, 
also, that the source package name is determined from SRC_URI, so even 
if the download worked, cygport wouldn't know the correct filename 
either (although if necessary I could work around that).

Support for mirror URIs as Portage does (i.e. 
mirror://sourceforge/${PN}/${P}.tar.bz2), which is the way I *want* to 
handle this, is already in TODO, and I've been considering different 
ways to handle it.  Probably sometime during 0.2 or 0.3 cycle.
