Striping them away is only the forth best solution. There are some better
solutions like:

- make upstream include the sources
- include the sources yourself
- make upstream not include files without source

That might not always be easy, but it's not different from getting any
other fixes upstream.

If people are drawn away by someone caring for the freedom of our users,
perhaps they are not really a loss. </scnr>
