I must admit that I'm a bit uncomfortable with this, and I wouldn't
want anything to backfire on SBo for hosting it.  In my mind it's no
worse than having to download jdk etc. source manually to build it.

Just because it's an inconvenience for build tools is no reason to
try to bypass what the developers are trying their hardest to have
people read, and there may be good reason for someone to *want* to
read it to understand if they agree and want to continue to install
it, or not, as the case may be.

I would put a note in the README about it and leave it at that.

What do the other admins think?
