Bug#465817: debian-installer: Should not enable source package lines by default

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist

*** Please type your report below this line ***

The etch DI release (at least) adds source package lines to apt, which
on a slow link (eg, 128k ISDN) can add several minutes to the install
time. As a vast majority of *users* never need them please consider
disabling them by default.

  APT policy: (500, 'testing')
