I understand that.  But still, managing source builds is a lot of  
work when multiplied by 10+, even when the software is "done".  I  
don't want to have to build it even once.  Right now, I can install  
many, many packages using Fink/apt-get/yum with basically one  
command:  "fink install ..." or "apt-get install ..." or "yum  
install ..."

realize his wishes.  Now that he can realize them, he must either  
change them, or perish.    -William Carlos Williams
