It wasn't I who edited the FAQ, nor am I an ftpmaster.  I don't believe
that this FAQ entry was made in order to make a rule on a new kind of
issue.  I think it is to clarify a misconception that seems to be
becoming more common about "what is the source code".  I don't belive
that this stance we are taking about what constitutes source code is at
all a new one.
