Well, if we take *that* view then there is no need to do anything.
Just wait for the distro guys to pick up the game and push it out
on CD.

If you believe in that then no new scheme of any kind is required.

I don't believe in that. There are around 400 games listed on
the games tome site and only about a dozen of them came bundled
in SuSE 6.2. 

If we have to wait for the distro guys, we'll have a LONG wait.
