Compiled code is easy. =)
Picture this use case, though — there's a web interface where users can
upload tarballs to a server, and the interface automatically detects
dependencies, deciphers the build process for common build systems, and
creates a basic packaging script. It would be a lot cheaper on the
resources, not to mention probably more secure, if the package never
even needed to get built.
