Well, that's a blow, but it's not necessarily the end of portable
derived sources, iff developers are careful to never (ab)use this
feature to create nonportable derived sources.

I'm not qualified to judge that.  I'm fine with changing the semantics
in Automake (so that vala derived sources are not distributed), but
please do Cc: vala-list for such Vala-related changes in Automake, in
case they have comments; in fact, this whole thread may be of interest
to them so I've added the list in Cc: now.
