It doesn't really matter what the reasons were, a -bin package is a
-bin package regardless of whether or not upstream decides to release
the source or not. In fact, calling it -bin correctly initially would
have prevented all of the subsequent issues you delcare.

Good job.

Let's hope the open source package will adopt the appropriate name
instead of having to hack around a packager who claimed it instead of
properly using a -bin suffix to denote the package type in the first
