A binary release, while useful to some, would only be useful for one platform.
And would have to be installed in a chroot jail for security reasons.
FreeBSD/NetBSD/OpenBSD and Linux run on many hardware platforms. Thus the only
reasonable solution is a reader/player in source code. Until then, many people,
myself included, will not use flash. Webs sites that are flash only will lose
customers, and flash will not be as successful as it could be.
