Well, from the response to this so far and from talking to my colleagues
that are interested in PD but still haven't taken the plunge, it seems
that nice integrated, ready to go binaries with all the goodies would be
welcomed.  Perhaps what is needed is someone to compile all this stuff
for all the platforms into, to use the linux jargon, distributions.  As
I have access to linux and windows with compilers and should have access
to an O2 soon (and have the time), I would be happy to do this if people
are interested.  This way the individual packages can continue to be
mantained by their authors and released according to their own
schedules, but end users can get everything they want.  Let me know.
