It does have an advantage when I build for Windows, for example. I have
to build twice (i686, x86_64), so I do out of source builds. But
byte-compilation happens only once.

I guess the reason for it is that the source distribution, actually
includes the (non-source) elc files. The same is true for configure
which is also generated in source.
