What if the pulp_file plugin (the pulp3 one) would support syncing files
directly from remotes without a manifest? Like syncing from a remote
webserver or version control system. Maybe that would be a VCS plugin, not
the file_plugin, but regardless, other software similar to Pulp supports
[0] that use case.
