This has already been done for some packages (e.g. xmms, gstreamer-
plugins), and AFAIK is acceptable. Ideally, include as one of the
"SourceX:" lines a quick little script that can reproduce the modified
tarball from the original one (uncompress the original tarball, remove
this and that, recompress with the new tarball name).
