Is there any value in bundling them up in that way, rather than just
pointing to the original source RPMs?
We don't have stable locations for most source RPMs. The image could
stay around beyond a Koji garbage collection run.
It's also my experience that those who do not ship sources with binaries
automatically, as part of the same process, rarely deliver matching
source code at all.
