I did read your previous mail again, but I couldn't find any reason
besides "I always do it this way".

I think running the editor after extracting the distfile makes more
sense because by that time, url2pkg will have looked at the extracted
files and will have filled several variables already, which saves you time.

Do you have any other reason to run the editor in the initial phase?
