Bug#364650: re optional apt-src lines

The benefits I can think of from commenting out apt-src lines are:

- Faster installation time, doesn't have to download Sources.gz.
- Marginally faster apt-get update time. Now that apt in unstable uses
  diffs, this is unlikely to be worth commenting them out even for
  dialup users.
- Slightly less space used in /var, useful if 5 mb matters.

I'm not convinced this is worth breaking least suprise, which expects
apt-get source to work.
