FWIW, I was very excited when you started work on apt-src.  Please keep
it up.  I never liked the fact that we had "binary source" packages.
It's a kludge and should be discouraged.

Eduard's complaint that a user who buys a binary-only CD set will be
stuck without sources for linux-wlan-ng and other packages that don't
have -source packages is legitimate.  It's hard to claim that the users
should expect to find system sources on their CDs, though, if they
bought binary-only CD sets.
