There are people who are always unhappy. I had no idea what lzma is
and it took few minutes not only to get source but say magic words and
compile (I did not realize that tug distributes binaries)

Then I set LAN distribution of raw disks (on LAN even 1 GB is not
worth fuss usually)

Copywrite Holders Collective is coming after you; they would not
believe that anyone runs bittorrent (or buys blank CDs) to distribute
anything but illegal music. :-)
