Actually, we don't have a build target (yet) that produces a binary-only
distribution that we can ship and which you can run out of the box (not
counting the build/nutch.job alone, because it needs the Hadoop
infrastructure to run).

The current mixed (source+binary) distribution worked well enough so
far, but the size of the distribution is becoming a concern, hence the
idea to ship only the source. We may have been too hasty with that,
though... What do others think?
