Re: eliminating -source packages

In general I like this. I'd just like to add my $0.02 about the
implementation. Every few months some processor-optimization nuts (no
offense) ask if we'd consider optimizing for i686 or whatnot. It seems like
the technical side of this would be a breeze to implement along with the apt
source stuff and dpkg-source, although if I remember my policy correctly
there'd need to be a policy change to make all packages honor such a setting
most likely (I suppose it could be unnecessary, but those are
"further-down-the-line" details IMO).
