[Exherbo-dev] Dealing with dynamic data sources

Some packages come with a database that's regularly updated. Examples
include hddtemp and lspci. How should we handle this?

One way is to split the data out into a foo-data package, and have a
single 'scm' version of it that does a wget in src_unpack. That's what
I've done for hddtemp, as an experiment. You can see it in
ciaranm.git:5c73b0e29, which is not yet on the git repos list or CIA or
anything because you all suck.

Thoughts?
