I'd prefer having the full source in svn. At least for the packages
'scorched3d' and 'openal', possibly for 'freealut' as well.

As I don't use svn-buildpackage at all, removing the source from the
SVN makes it painful for me to construct the source package.

Nobody said a thing against sources in svn (yet :-D ), I was
complainaing about the orig tarballs themselves like they are in

I don't see any reason to have the packaged tarballs in SVN and was
suggesting to move all the tarballs under ftp or http space.
