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.
