I've seen both, actually. SQLite-Net, for instance, injects source 
directly into your project. Most libraries seem to distribute binaries 
though.

Fair enough. In newer versions of Visual Studio, both package 
maintenance through Nuget and source control through Github are more 
tightly integrated. However, your point about VS2010 being still rather 
common stands.
