The real advantage here is that our users can conveniently install it
from our central repository, no need to fiddle around and when 'we' ship
it, there is at least someone testing it so that someone knows the
possible quircks to make it work just fine on arch.

I see no real reason to 'ban' packages with binary sources. Or would you
rather go for the ubuntu model where we add a 'multiverse' like
repository where all the dirty stuff is stored ?
