Wow. Great idea.
Please realize it.
(I remember visiting the SGI homepage, they use something similar for
their binary packages)

But I have to question one thing:
In my opinion, there are two kinds of people.
The ones who don´t know enough about sourcecode.
  They don´t have compilers and stuff like that installed (What do
  I need a compiler for? I want to play a game, write some texts, ...)
  Those people need binary packages, as statically linked as possible.
The ones who know enough
  I think they don´t need this scripts.
  But I think they will like them anyways. :-)))
  (At first I only wanted to say that they don´t need such stuff, but
   the idea is too good to talk it away)
