Here is my POC. It should work for remote files (URLs), local files, VCS repos, and across different types (e.g. if you want to offer git and hg mirrors of a repo).
Totally untested. Feel free to change it if it's broken and take all the credit and submit to pacman-dev. :)

If my first pacman patch is going to be this big of a change to makepkg.sh.in I'd feel a lot more comfortable if an existing

Got a poc for a rather simple way of implementing it, not sure if it's going to be pretty enough.
I'll take a closer look tomorrow.
