Well, Google exists.  The download locations we actually mention are
those which are harder to find.  And I think the idea is to help
people use pdfsync if they want to, not get them to use it in the
first place: AUCTeX supports a lot of packages for which we don't
specify download locations.

Would be nice, yes.

Definitely.  This is part of rolling the release.  That's what I was
musing about with regard to automating it based on CVS variables.  It
would make things fit better if you could only get numbered release
versions by checking out with a release tag (since this is the only
way to guarantee that all other files are also of the appropriate
version corresponding to the release).
