That won't be enough. s-l-r has to get somehow the method of checking
and the URL list. Right now, it is constructed in such a way that
the method is based on VCS eclass being inherited, and then it grabs
appropriate ebuild vars from environment.bz2.

Such an eclass would have to take tarball URIs in some kind of envvar
and export some kind of 'download timestamp'. Then the Python module in
s-l-r would HEAD those URIs to get the current timestamp and compare
that to the value exported in environment.bz2.
