I always prefer that there is no reason to version the derived files,
but sometimes things are beyond your control because:
* Some files are not deterministically generated
* Some files are very expensive (time/effort) to generate
* Some files are created by a third party

In that case it's very helpful to version the files. Maybe more
helpful than versioning your source code.
