*sigh*, obviously, I meant .deb here.
For example, cpp_3.3.3-2_i386.deb contains the header:
 Source: gcc-defaults (1.14)

Any .deb indicates its source, including binary-only NMU's, so no
version number fiddling is needed to find the source (which would be
impossible too, is 1.2-0.0.1 a binary NMU of 1.2, or of 1.2-0? Though
nonstandard, the latter isn't forbidden)
