In response to a few requests for a binary distribution, we just posted artifacts for Virgil.
http://code.google.com/a/apache-extras.org/p/virgil/downloads/list

For simplicity, we're keeping the version number aligned with the version of Cassandra. 
(which is important when you are running with an embedded Cassandra ;)

Also, we changed it so you can simply specify the Cassandra instance you want to run against as a command line parameter:
http://code.google.com/a/apache-extras.org/p/virgil/wiki/runmode

This makes it easy to point the GUI at different Cassandra instances. 

Let me know if anyone has any trouble.
