This is neat!  Any particular reason you went straight for an SVN
snapshot instead of
http://llvm.org/releases/3.7.0/compiler-rt-3.7.0.src.tar.xz ?  Just
because that's what the Go README does, or was there some kind of

Also, does anyone know if there's already a source package consuming
the compiler-rt tarball that we could maybe patch to run this script
into a new binary package? :)
