This may be our own invention. Perhaps the terms source comes from going
down a call stack and modifying things, when possible. Or generally, it
seems to also mean Frame-work Hacks. For instance taking object code and
doing something not-traditionally done like reverse engineering. I do
not think its meant to be a best practice or serious topic. Moreso, it
may be educational and occasionally useful for some unusual situations.
Perhaps, we should give a do not try this at home disclaimer.
