Bundling the actual source instead of prebuilt files still doesn't
solve the problem of not being able to build from source because the
build tools are missing from Debian. It has always been ftp-master
policy that source must be buildable on Debian and the latest mail
from them just reiterates that and states that yes, this does apply to
everything, including JavaScript.

Some day browsers will support WebAssembly so you can write in any
language that can compile to that. I'm sure people will start writing
web front-end code in PHP once it gets an LLVM backend ;P
