The current "winning" opinion is to go with the source+throw away

simply that it has not yet been enabled.  Before any version of this
can be enabled, buildd autosigning needs to be implemented in order
that dak can differentiate buildd uploads vs maintainer uploads.

It may be necessary to also move the building of contrib packages to the unofficial non-free buildd network. As it stands any contrib package which has a non-free Build-Depends is not guaranteed to build on all architectures since not all the buildd systems include the non-free archives. Up to now it has been possible to do binary uploads to work around this and get as many architectures in the archive as possible to build manually. When this new option is enabled, it will no longer be possible.
