[RFC] New ports idea: github / gitorious / bitbucket direct support.

I notice, that many software projects are hosted on social DVCS
Other common "feature" among them is absence of "official" tarballs
for versions. I don't say, that ALL projects whith primary hosting on
these DVCS sites don't publish official tarballs. But many of them
On other hand, all these DVCS sites provide way to download auto-generated tarballs
for any tag or branch or revision.
Maybe, we need support for this model to ports system directly? Like
we support SourceForge and other code hosting sites.
