What I meant is that the .sty is always already generated in the SVN repo.
Can you find a counter-example?

And some where it's a mix of both :p

Hmm, maybe you are right and I'm wrong about this.

TeXlive has many formats: mf (source), afm, tfm, type1, several bitmap

"other-free", while some are under "unknown".  Hmm...
Well, let's take care about this later.
