There must be a source-only tarball.  (I am aware that Hadoop and other
projects do not always abide by ASF policy in this matter.)  The source is
considered the release.  We may, for the convenience of our users, create
additional packages built from the source release.  It doesn't matter if
these are binary-only or source+binary, as long as they don't contain
additional source or binaries built from source not included in the
canonical source tarball / SVN tag.  http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html

We already have some source in the binary release: the java code for the
examples, which is there as documentation.  So we probably shouldn't sweat
too much over the label "binary".  I personally like pre-built packages
that contain all the source code, but I don't mind trying out a streamlined
package for this release.

It does seem like we should either provide a bunch of pre-built native
libs, or make it easy for people to generate their own.
