We don't enable them by default on cloud images, so I guess it can't
be a legal requirement to have them. ubuntu-dev-tools has
pull-lp-source which works without local apt sources, but we don't
install that by default -- and we shouldn't as-is as it has a horribly
heavy dependency chain.

But maybe we can separate out pull-lp-source so that it's suitable for
shipping by default?
