I would prefer that we quit releasing non-source distributions at all;
the exceptions would be Windows eggs for packages containing extensions.
 Any binary egg for Linux is a disaster waiting to happen:  setuptools
will happily install it into a Python which has incompatible compilation
options (UCS4 vs UCS2, for instance).  AFAIK, the Mac toolchain, like
the Linux one, is happy to create locally-installable binary eggs from
the sdist versions.
