Is it possible to transition from dumping source artifacts and patches

nice too.
The question is what level of changes are we prepared to accept to
recipes? If we don't want to set S for git, where would we accept
setting things? Or do we want to make it all "magic"?

The one thing in the favour of the current approach is that it is
simple. We could put all kinds of logic in there to make it all more
magic but I'm reluctant to do so. The git recipe S thing has bothered
me for a long time but the question is what it should do instead?
