I have tweaked package Universes to accept a bracketed script in place 
of a url in the "download from" field.
Universes already ignores anything beginning with $( as not being a url, 
so putting the script in brackets seemed reasonable to me.

download from:
(Installer squeaksource project:'MagmaTester'; install: 

Using this scheme in conjunction with Installer, Universes can now 
manage dependencies between, and load squeakmap packages, or mantis fixes.

This also provides a work-around so that Universes can load monticello 
packages with dependencies.
It also allows universes to access other non-url based resources such as 
magma/goods repositories.

I think that this could be very useful.

1) is it an acceptable idea?
2) Were can I contribute this change to?

best regards
