We only need to ensure that the source builds, runs and is installable. 
We meet those requirements without having to create binary installers.

I propose instead that we improve the flexibility of our approach by 
changing the installer into an initial configuration script. Doing this 
will only add a few steps to the install instructions and allow me to 
remove some extremely annoying aspects of the current process. I was 
experimenting with this further last night and I think I have something 
that should be a lot more robust.
