The feature that allows to override the source directory for a package
hasn't been integrated in 2011.08 because it was too late in the
development cycle to integrate it.

However, I was posted yesterday a new version of the patches and I hope
to get them merged for the 2011.11. At least this time I am not late: I
posted the patches the exact day 2011.08 was released, so I couldn't do
earlier than that in the development cycle :-)

If you have the opportunity to test those patches, it would be great.
