The latter. Keeping reference to the source code means that you have
taken into account the needs of debugging/tracing: you can step
through the code, set break points, etc., even if the pieces are
dynamically assembled. Dynamically compiling code is piece of cake,
even C# does that. But have you thought about break points and
debugging issues?
