Note that this is not necessarily true. In theory, jQuery should require
Grunt as well, but I was able to mimic the original build process
without using Grunt. It took me a few hours, I would say, but it was way
easier than packaging the gazillion dependencies needed to have Grunt

The source package contains exactly the source upstream uses for
development, and the files shipped in the binary package match exactly
what upstream distributes as pre-compiled, modulo whitespace. I even
automated testing that this is the case as an autopkgtest test.
