Bingo.

... and packagers are much more adept at this than most upstream

ton of it making binary packages. n hours I spend doing that is n hours
I *don't* spend improving the actual software. There are many people in
the world who can and do the packaging part, and few who can and do
effective work on the code.

Packagers provide a valuable service; having upstream developers try to
emulate commercial software distribution methods (against platform
norms, making their software weird and annoying) would be a giant step
backwards in several ways.

So, thanks, packagers. If you want to make universal binary packages
for most Lignux systems, by all means, feel free. I sure won't be.
