Glad we agree on the distro point.

Binary releases are fine for those what want to use them, assuming
there's no glibc or X library incompatibility issue lurking just below
the surface.

However, what about those of us who *want* to build from source? I
hope you're not suggesting we won't always be able to? I like watching
code build. It's so relaxing... ;-)
