The current behaviour, which is placing source packages in PKGDEST if
SRCPKGDEST is not set, is inconsistent with {SRC,PKG}DEST handling and
there is no real advantage in doing so.

Other than preserving backward compatibility and the way it has worked
for 2-3 years...

I don't have a super strong opinion, but to pretend like this isn't on
purpose is not true at all.

I will give this an ack...

Mainly because, if I wanted to set PKGDEST and keep SRCPKGDEST as the
default (when both PKGDEST and SRCPKGDEST are unset - i.e. $startdir),
it would not be obvious how to do this.

And even though it is documented in the man page under SRCPKGDEST, it is
not particularly obvious that adjusting PKGDEST will affect SRCPKGDEST.
