> Why not _add_ source dependencies before that?

Adding source dependencies requires hacking dpkg, which seems to be
difficult enough that bugs in dpkg aren't getting fixed very quickly.
Thus, I'd rather not make source dependencies a goal. And anyway,
for them to be useful, all packages must add them, which means all
packages need to be updated, which is going to make it harder to
meet the goal of getting slink out on time.

But certainly, source dependencies need to be developed.
