I'm building every Xorg-package as a separate package-user, & it was no 
great hardship for me to download the individual package-tarballs using 
wget by copy/pasting the download domain & appending the package-name to 
it from the wget-list - i see no need for an exhaustive list of the full 
URL's of each package.
