Linux As we all know, Mac OS X has support for what is called 'fat binaries'. These are binaries that can carry code for for instance multiple architectures - in the case of the Mac, PowerPC and x86. Ryan Gordon was working on an implementation of fat binaries for Linux - but due to the conduct of the Linux maintainers, Gordon has halted the effort.

I thought this was a good idea. It may have led to people, who because of maintenance reasons decided in the past not to release a linux version of an app to do so.
Who wants to have mantain a binary for each distros packaging system etc etc
