That's bullshit.  The GPL requires you to keep around the source _if_ you
hand out binaries only with a written offer to get source later.  SGI never
used that GPL clause but always distributed both source adn binaries from
the same place (oss.sgi.com and the SGI ProPack CDROMs).

Even if SGI didn't they just have to give you the source for the old binaries
but not keep them in the same place forever.
