Well, I think one or the other should go out with the release and better
just the pkgsrc than nothing.  And, I sort of like how pkgsrc goes out and
ftps the src, patches, and builds ;-).

The hard part with releasing the binaries, is that I would want the
binaries organized and fetchable by specific package.  I don't want
everything just some of the packages.  I don't believe that this change
could make it with the 1.3 release.

So please ship something less than perfect
