Sure, I do it that way for many of my packages.  These patches, I think,
were derived from Fedora's .src.rpm.  AFAIK, I can't yet specify a
"download path" that says "go look inside this tarball/rpm/deb and grab
a specific file".

Sure, NP. I'm not going to attempt to hack together a pseudo release
using AfterStep's version of the code; instead I'll just go with the
libAfterImage-1.18 stuff.  The good news there, is that when you
eventually release AfterStep-2.2.9:

  libAfterImage0-2.2.9 will automatically update/replace
