Shipping waf uncompressed?

As was recently pointed out to me in Debian, we're shipping waf in an 
odd format - as a serialized tarball  (with characters replaced) inside 
of a Python file.

This makes it quite inconvenient to actually view the waf source code, 
and obscures the source code in a pure source tarball. Shipping it this 
way isn't really useful for us - we already ship the entire buildtools/ 
directory anyway, so it's not a problem if there are a couple of extra 
files in there.

Does anybody have an objection against actually shipping the unpacked 
soure code ?
