I think this is something good to have, but I’m skeptical about the
fallback to the source. It will, in unstable and sometimes in testing or
even stable, to situations where the modules are not available for a
while, and the source will get installed, leaving the system in a broken
state. Unless the source can use DKMS or a similar mechanism to
automatically generate modules, this is not very reliable.
