I think it is enough to help users look at the source code
once they decide to download it.

If you build and run Emacs uninstalled, this works automatically.  We
could fairly easily make it more convenient for those who run
installed Emacs and unpack the corresponding source in their home

To go further than that would do no harm, but it could be a lot of
work.  I suggest that people do the work if they want to.
