I wrote a Makefile.am for the tests dir, which works very much like the
one for scripts/ .  If you change the test to something like:

if not "download" in "@LIBS@":
    self.option['XferCommand'] = ['/usr/bin/curl %u > %o']

rename it to sync200.py.in and run automake and friends, both cases
should be covered. I'm not sure if this is really worth the trouble,
but this could be useful in other cases.
