I agree and believe that distributing practically unmodifiable
software to our users is a violation of the spirit (but probably not
the letter) of the social contract and DFSG (especially item 3).

Whenever I take over upstream for a game, I try to convert whatever
crap they made available into proper source instead. I also try to
encourage upstreams to use proper, modifiable, source and wrote some
guidelines for that. I would encourage the rest of the team to do that
