[aur-dev] What should AURv4 helpers do to get packages?

In AURv4, URLPath was removed due to the introduction of Git
integration, which raises the question: what is the recommended way
for AUR helpers to get packages?  Should they:

(a) manually generate a clone URL (/PKGBASE.git/) and clone it?
(b) manually generate a tarball URL
(/cgit/aur.git/snapshot/PKGBASE.tar.gz) and download it?
(c) do something else entirely?

In other words: could you please add a RPC field with a “recommended”
URL to work with?
