Assaph, I noticed that you changed the http.head() call in 
RemoteSourceFetcher to be http.get().  Was that required for your fix?  
The http.head() call was used to avoid downloading the entire remote 
source if it hasn't changed.  I'm afraid things would get slower if we 
went back to http.get().
