For example, today when I discover the bug of loosing sources...I commit my own package with a lots of methods with the decompiled source...it took time to fix it.  So I think it is important to fix this.
I think we should roll back the change for now...

All this shows that the source handling is *far* too complex... How would we realize source handling *today* considering today's resources? (aka: compression is free and memory even
on last year's cell phone 20 times larger than our complete system...)
