Distributing source code seems to be inconsistent with the desire to enforce
version controls. The availability of source code seems to be an attraction
to the "tinkerer" much like a flame is to a moth--one's version control be-
comes a historical artifact when the "tinkerer" gets access to the code.

If the source is distributed on a media other than electronic as "documentat-
tion", it is extremely useful and it is relatively easy to maintain version
control of the software.
