Nitpicking GPL lines over this is a waste. Blender binaries can be  
zipped, packed, encrypted, and transported in many ways. For as long  
the Blender sources are GPL it won't matter at all for me.

It's just a kind offer of a company to provide us with an installer,  
something certain users would appreciate. My proposal is to incorporate  
this request in the work we still have to do on reviewing specs &  
fixing the ways a Blender binary is installed, and how its dependencies  
are handled for install.

And if RawByte likes to offer a Blender installer on their site, and/or  
offer to Linux distros, they have my blessings. :)
