I've been building standalone darcs binaries since 1.0.9 because
I didn't want to require GMP.Framework as the other binaries
available at the time did. I'm willing to continue doing that, and 
perhaps adding additional features such as an installer. It seems,
however, that Five Square have been doing that for a while now
and it probably doesn't make sense to duplicate effort.

I don't have machines running Mac OS 10.4 or 10.5, so I would be
unable to test on those platforms. Targeting previous version of the
OS might be tricky, but perhaps someone else already has experience
with that.
