I am working with this also.

What I am thinking I will do is this, which is along the lines you are 


example: tdelibs-git-2011-12-24.tar.xz

Then I am going to build like once a week, automated of course.
I will have two scripts the first on will git clone the package(s) and 
make a tarball, sed the version numbering in the build script.
The second one will then do the build.

May not workout that way but that is my plan so far.

This is from my build script,  tested it works for me.
Well I am testing it now and it seems to be working.....
It will change when I go to git as this one fetchs the 3.5.13 version, I 
will remove the pushd git popd so it will give me the master

mksource() {
     git clone${pkgname}
     pushd ${pkgname}
         git checkout v3.5.13
     tar -cvJf ${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.xz ${pkgname}/*

Gives me a source tarball like this tdelibs-3.5.13.tar.xz

Maybe that helps?
