 I think that would be better done in the cross toolchain package

 However, I do not like the idea of enforcing GPL requirements with
 exact version in the cross toolchain when the archive doesn't support
 it for any package yet.  I think pointing at a snapshot.debian.net
 alike service providing all versions of all sources which have ever
 been in Debian unless they can't be redistributed is a better way of
 solving the source compliance problem and it would actually solve it in
 the cross toolchain case as well.
