One thing we might need to establish is how many people within the group
here, have actually compiled and tried the Win32 version.  Ben, Alexei,
Ambarish (obviously) and myself are the only ones I know of.  I think that
if within this group we can only pull together 4 people to test the source
version, we are going to have a really tough time getting a lot of outside
testers.  And if we do release a source version, I have a feeling that
within hours there will be all sorts of binary versions floating about
anyway.  We may as well keep some control over how the thing is compiled
and release a binary version so we have some hope of determining whether a
reported problem is a genuine bug or somebody who didn't know how to use
their compiler.
