I'm trying to implement
https://github.com/archlinuxfr/package-query/issues/11 and
https://github.com/archlinuxfr/yaourt/issues/129. In package-query, the
tarball URL is from the RPC JSON result, and fallback to the hardcoded one
if such an information is not provided by the remote end. I hope to use the
same approach to add a field in package-query without loss of consistence
in code base, so I'm requesting adding a field in upstream.

Using hardcoded paths works just fine, but less elegant in my opinion.
