We actually do have a binaries dir along side of the src dir; however,
we have never populated it.  I just included the source dirs in my test
archive to cut down on disk space usage and let us focus on the source
dirs organization.  See my reply to Donnie for more explanation.

As for the name of the src dir, I'm not opposed to changing it, but I
really don't like "branded" since that doesn't let users know that this
is where you find the sources.  Also, "full" and "release" don't work
since both the branded and unbranded set of tarballs are both releases
and contain the full set of tarballs.  I'm still thinking about other
possible names, but I haven't come up with any that will work yet.
