And didn't we decide to do this a while ago in an IRC meeting?  Or am I 
making that up...  I think it would be a GREAT idea if we kept sources 
along with pkgbuilds and packages.  We can just store the .tar.gz 
somewhere, it doesn't need to be versioned like pkgbuilds.

We are violating licenses by not doing this, I think it's of high priority.

The last thing we want is another Ion fiasco.
