However, that brings to mind another issue: patches. The profile will 
also need to download patches from a canonical source as well.

In my profiles I use {unpack} elements even for patches, and store all 
the patches on my source server bz2'd. This can be avoided by using 
{download} elements, but it's inconsistent when you use {unpack} for the 
package tarballs.
