Hmm when I read "sources" I was thinking "a URL to download source that 
is no longer accessible" (or no longer downloads the exact same thing as 
before, thus broken hashes...).  Of course that's somewhat fuzzy because 
sites can be down for short periods of time (& the latter about hashes, 
is rarer, and more wasteful to check since a script would have to 
download the whole thing).  But maybe if a URL is broken 3 or 4 times in 
a row or some algorithm, it could be useful, if it doesn't create too 
much load on anybody's machine. (I've run into broken source URLs trying 
to use a few AUR packages, I think).
