It looks like a major structural change, since the exit 1 is deep inside
each download_{file,git,bzr,...} function definition in makepkg.sh.in in
the pacman git repo: For example the one for download_file() in
makepkg.sh.in line 379 would probably move up to the download_sources()
function, and return 1 instead of exit 1, then the return code would be
checked, etc...

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 pacman/makepkg
dev were available off-list via email or IM for some brain-picking.  Any
