If we make a src tarball available for download, then it is a release. It 
doesn't matter that it is useless on it's own nor that similar 
functionality is included in part of a larger package elsewhere.

We have been making the src available for download since the first version, 
so why not continue to do so but do so within the ASF rules and have a 
release vote? The overhead of a vote is pretty small and it isn't like it 
is going to be struggling for +1s.

There are other differences, the key one being that we make it available 
for separate download.

I thought it was a licensing issue on one of the required libraries but 
that doesn't really matter here. The point is it looks like a release, it 
gets tagged like a release, it gets distributed like a release, why not 
just do a release?
