friendly API: Easy way to change the URL-Scanner

Issue #32 wontfix

The current API does not allow changing the URL-Scanner easily. Currently this are a few lines at the end of package_index.PackageIndex.process_url(). Changing this required process_url() to be copied and change the last line.

Changing the scanner is required e.g. if sourceforge changes URLs again or if other accessing "foreign" repositories which may hide the download URL in some javascript (as sourceforge did Juli 2009)
