So we ask our mirrors to please pull the source if they pull any $ARCH.
Problem solved.

The GPL requires that the sources are *available*, it doesn't (seem to)
require they're in the exact same directory or same server or whatever.

(If you interpret the GPL's "accompany" strictly, you could argue that
one needs to package source+binary into the same file ...)
