We need to include source. The binary package in debs/ is an aggregate
work of, (apparently), libgpod and the scripts and control files used to
build a binary package. We don't have the source for the packaging, and
we don't have the source for libgpod, (at least not for that version).
The source may be out there somewhere, but it's not in Debian and it 
isn't in this package.
