I *love* the idea (certainly would make my relmgr life a little easier ;)

I'm concerned about the implementation of the property.

Do you set something like:
                neon: http://www.webdav.org/neon/neon-0.23.9.tar.gz

If so, how do set the property such that it's OS-agnostic?
Additional layers:

        neon-unix: http://www.webdav.org/neon/neon-0.23.9.tar.gz
        neon-win: http://www.webdav.org/neon/neon-0.23.9.zip
        neon-mac: http://www.webdav.org/neon/neon-0.23.9.???

And if so, how do you determine which one to pull down for the
current build machine?

Of course, these are just small details I suppose. But I *really*
like the idea :)

+1 from me :)
