I rarely share Marco's opinion, but this time I do.
A way around removing the files would be to ask upstream to add the original
(big) sources and some way to generate the shipped small files out of them, like
a makefile/whatever which does the job. Then the miniaturized version comes with
their original source (yet another copy of...) and everybody would be happy.
