Yeah, I accept the point.  Perhaps the fact that you want fix-reports
instead of bug-reports could've been clearer in the apache-announce
message (although on re-reading it I can see that this was intended).

The main reason I feel binaries are necessary is that it really is a
pain  to compile C code on NT vs. UNIX especially if you have a
different version of MSVC++.  I'd like to be able to run the binary and
refer to the source if I think there's a problem.  But I guess I can
live with a compilation for now...
