Anyway, there's still the code, and we can at least try and compile on

Well, I consider it one of the basic principles of FLOSS in general and especially Debian that software packages are recompiled from their source code. If the source is not available, the software could hardly be called free and if the source does not compile, there are bugs either in the software itself or in Debian's toolchain that need to be fixed.

I just wanted to get this statements right, although I am sure you all knew this already. ;)
