Bug#364650: re optional apt-src lines

Quoting Joey Hess (joeyh@debian.org):
> 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.

Low priority debconf question?
