I tergiversate too. On the whole I'd default to not storing the
generated files, and then asking our core non-developer users
(fullermd, etc) whether this is a burden for them.  Since we do
release pretty often and we do make release candidates (which would
contain the generated files) people who cannot generate them can still
run something quite current.

Also it's proposed that we should make nightly debs/tarballs.
