I agree with the first few bullets.

Is a src bundle is useful to anyone at this stage of the game?  For
"real" releases, sure, but for now it might make more sense to release
binaries only and point people at the source code control system if
they want to build.  The problem with people building from the source
bundle is that if they try to do anything interesting (like make
changes to the code) then they're in trouble since they won't have a
mechanism to stay in sync or submit patches that apply cleanly. I
think that we've got good enough instructions on the wiki so building
from svn isn't much more complicated than building from a tarball.
