[alpine-devel] saveas uri in APKBUILDs

Hi,

We have a nice feature to download a file with a different name:

  source="saveas-http://$url/newfilename"

I have noticed that Arch Linux has something similar:

  source="newfilename::http://$url"

Do we want to change to same format?

Benefits:
* Easier for Arch users to switch
* Slightly more intuitive?

Drawbacks:
* abuild code probably gets messier
* potensial scripts that parses APKBUILD and uses $source might break.
  (i doubt there are any)

Opinions?
