I'm not sure I like where this is going. I think this is encouraging
people too much to reuse other people's binary crap without regard for
shipping proper corresponding source code.
I certainly would not like to see proliferation of such SDKs in the
wild, as many people and organizations tend to be careless about
shipping corresponding source code.
Even though it may take a bit longer to build, I'd much rather have SDKs
contain forks of relevant source packages instead.
