I guess I was assuming the install program would ask at the beginning
of the install if you wanted to have sources installed too. So it
wouldn't be a per-package option (for the distro installer) but a
global one. That way, once you have set up your target directory,
chosen the disk sets you want to install, and whether/not you want
source code, the installer would pretty much run unattended.

Of course, the standalone fdpkg program should have a command-line
option so if you're installing a single package afterwards, you should
always be able to specify if you want to keep source code.
