Economies of scale! When I worked at the mall they paid someone to do
the gift wrapping around Christmas time which many people enjoyed as it
saved them the time! Although my boss passed this wisdom onto me: "The
Wrapping is the only attractive part of the whole operation, there's
nothing quite like the thrill of getting a papercut while struggle to
box up something as awkward as a blow up doll" Okay that's being a
little bit cynical, I am trying not to imply that the work of TDF have
gone and produced a fully open source adult toy which is very fun to
play with! However there are these like that on the market which run on
the FLOSS model!

I personally would like to see someone such as Nixie Pixel as a calender
girl for Libreoffice, The marketing strategy here would be amazing!

Hi :)
Clicking on that link didn't work in my 'email client'

Actually Girvin did say that he didn't want to compile from source. 
Imagine the pre-compiled "binary" to be a new toy.  Some people prefer to
wrap it in posh, elegant wrapping paper (lets say that is the .rpm
paper).  Others prefer something cheerful and friendly (that's the .deb). 

Girvin takes the present, unwraps it (and thanks the givers (as we all
do, right?)) and then wraps it in some other wrapping paper to give to
his system.  

So i think what is being suggested is that if we do ever get 1-click
installers then as well as having the source-code it might be nice to
have the shiny new toy also available without wrapping paper, or to have
a version wrapped in either version of the wrapping paper already being
