Ah, I was just misunderstanding the format of the repo. I was assuming it was more similar to a ports tree, where each library is specified in the index using a directory which can have random files sitting in it, like Makefiles, .patch files, etc. along with a metadata spec file.

Looking at the repo you linked, there's no allowance for that, so at least in this case you should be safe.
