I once considered packaging sed from v7 UNIX, which has all the
coreutils bundled in one source repo, and so literally considered
src:unix, although in both cases it was largely a joke and I didn't
pursue it.

Oh, that's still lying around somewhere:
<https://github.com/jmtd/v7unix/tree/master/v7/debian> although not with
src:unix. (And the credit getting sed to *build* as well as the initial
packaging, goes to David Jones)
