But why bother wrapping it up AT ALL!
My mother always said: don't ask stupid question which you can answer yourself. I can not believe I see this stupidity here on LWN.
Why should I have to wrap the binary up, when they're simply going to unwrap it at the other end?
Think. That's kind of obvious.
P.S. And no, "wrapping is done to annoy Linux users" is wrong answer. Wrapping is actuslly essential to the process. Why it's done using Microsoft's tools and not, for example, PGP is obvious.
