But it also means that the tools needs to be available. Make no mistake, I
distribute source and all that, but if I were to distribute binaries as
well, it would mean that the end users have a lot harder time getting into
the edit-test cycle.

IMHO anyway. Xracer did it this way, and I never really bothered to check
out how maps were made, whereas tuxracer used a simple height map that
could be edited in any image editor. It was a lot simpler for me to begin
doing (as a user).
