Uh, yes, that's right. I should say I've performed small experiment with
'stat' and right now it doesn't appear in stub. B it turned out that
this is because it is not assigned to any library/libgroup, only to
header; mkstublibs is not aware of 'source only' flag.

So probably it would be better to teach Navigator to smarter handle
SrcOnly symbols.
