Well, maybe the promoting would be better done by actually shipping something
this way that shows how well it works, rather than just talking about it. I
don't see that the user experience is any better with runnable zips, though I'm
not saying it's any worse. After that, it just comes down to individual developer
taste, and there's no accounting for that :-)
