Yes, but as soon as a source file changes, my understanding is that
you need an NMU not a binNMU, because the Debian source package must
be exactly what was used to compile it. Or a new upload, of course.
Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-

detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font. -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
