There are two little flaws in your reasoning.
     1. Compression ratios, even for source code, don’t reach 99%.
     2. There are other very little things in source packages, such as,
        I don’t know… data?


The overall size of the full compressed sources is 17 GB. Tell me this
has only a minor impact.
