True, and I don't think it should be included in the distribution either,
but it would be _really_ nice if someone could run this thing on a web
page, which would then compile the kernel remotely and then place the
binary somewhere where you can fetch it from ftp.. Of course you have to
take the risk of running something you haven't compiled, but people do
that everyday with crappy shareware (well, sometimes crappy) on other
operating systems...
