i have tried soemthing like that in the past too. you could add a test
for a prdownloads.sf.net page with the projects' name, that will work
for ~15% of all packages without watch files.

you will also find out that the problem is not that it is so hard to
create watch files for the maintainers, but that quite some just don't
want a watch file in their package... <sigh>
