Actually I do want both where possible.

I've therefore changed the templates:

There are now two entities created:
template-download-http; and template-download-ftp;

Both are referenced in template-intro.xml and both are ulink's by

We should move exisiting packages to this setup as we go along but all
new packages should have both http and ftp locations (unless there is a
genuine case where only one is supplied).

I'm about to commit instructinos for tcsh which will give an example as
to how this works.

CC's to blfs-dev for info.
