Patch for nALFS

i think ALFS could be improved a lot.
My first propose of an enhancement is a <source> tag for <unpack> which 
contains an url.
If <unpack> can't find the package at <archive> it will get it from <source>.



It propose to change the syntax to something like this:


<unpack> would the look for a package ed-0.2.tar.bz2 in /usr/src/packeges.
If there is none get it from <source>
But this is maybe for <alfs version="3.0"> :-)

Attached you find a patch against src/handlers/unpack.c.
Please give it a try.
