Sure - I get that. There's a couple of reasons for me doing it. First is gpg 
signing the release files, which has to happen on my local machine. There's 
also the variation in who actually builds the releases; at least one of the 
Mac builds was done by Bob I. But there could be ways around this. I don't 
want to have to ensure every builder has scp, and I'd also prefer for it to 
all "go live" at once. A while back, the Mac installer would follow up "some 
time" after the Windows and source builds. Every release, I'd get emails 
saying "where's the mac build?!"

I can't disagree with this.
