Because it wasn't entirely clear here, I don't think it is a bug that
the source packages contain actually the the code; it's only a bug if
they actually use it in the building process.  I don't think it's at all
useful to contact upstreams about embedded copies of code, as long as it's
possible to specify a systme-wide version at build-time.  Everybody wins
that way.
