I did try such a thing. I submitted an experimental version to the
Inbox a good few months ago. I could not get SSL working on my Linux
laptop though, and you simply have to use SSL to do anything on

My approach was to download a zipball of the desired repository (using
a commit ID, a tag, a branch name, or similar), and use parts of
Monticello to turn the source code into something loadable. It worked,
and then the SSL plugin stopped working and I could not get it working
again. (I can't get it working on build.squeak.org, which is (partly)
why the ExternalPackages build has so many failing tests.
