Hmm. Since the DD/sponsor is the one who creates the uploaded
packages, they do not have to insis; they can just make it so. I hope
DD's do the actual tend build/clean/rebuild/piuparts-run personally.
Therefore I actually am only insistent on the sources being available,
since I usually discard the pre-build .debs anyway.
YOW!! I'm in a very clever and adorable INSANE ASYLUM!!
