I think that is/should be part of the deal, yes. All source code should 
be auditable by users who are interacting with the software (I don't 
personally count a failed login as an interaction)

There is a clear difference between grabbing a copy of some code which 
may or may not work in any other context and being given a supported 
release of some software, it is like running code from a random revision 
of an experimental feature branch - it probably won't work and might 
kill kittens. If you use it you own all the pieces, there is no 
obligation on the author to help you put them back together again.
