While a number of web app maintainers in Debian seem to choose to do
that, it's explicitly discouraged by the Debian Policy, see section
4.13
(http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-source.html#s-embeddedfiles)

So this is actually a bug in galette (especially so once jquery-cookie
1.4.0 makes it in the archive).

Well, in this case, the package manager is the law, because it has to
decide wether a package is an upgrade or a downgrande over another
version of the same package. The version number is depended on for this.
