This is one case where IMO genini is better than upset: genini-generated
setup.ini's don't list source-only packages in setup's package selector,
while still being available through the "Src" option of any of its
subpackages. Could upset be changed to match, which would avoid this
problem for *all* source-only packages?
Why not just rename the package "gcc-src" to make it clear what's going
gcc is only one example; many packages (most being library-only) have a
source-only "main" package. Not listing them while still allowing Src
(as genini does) makes things very clear IMHO.
