I think that ought to follow the same rule: 'git clone' and
making a release tarball from a git repo should both either
(a) not ship a binary blob
or (b) include the sources which made up that binary blob

I know this isn't exactly where we are today; to some extent
I'm trying to see if anybody else agrees with this position...

Yes, this is a difficult problem (which also holds for test cases);
I'm not objecting to having the blobs in git and in tarballs, I
just want the sources too.
