AFAIK, it is a policy requirement. Every section of the archive (main,
contrib, non-free, non-US/main, non-US/contrib, non-US/non-free) must have
separate source packages.

Maybe it could be changed/ignored for main/contrib pairs, but non-free and
non-US/* always require separate source packages.  Some of the stuff that
can go inside a non-free source package is not allowed even inside
main/contrib packages (requiring you to delete them from the package in
main/contrib, and keep it in the non-free one)...

I'm happy enough I can build fetchmail and fetchmail-ssl with one shell
script, and deal with only one source tree... cute hack or not :P
