For what it's worth, I polled my twitter followers and got some interesting feedback

I'm going to look deeper into supporting homebrew , dpkg, rpm, etc in my projects.  It's a royal pain for me, but it's much more convenient and secure for people already using these systems.  Also it does appear that people feel more comfortable downloading a binary (I can add hash sums on the website if people bother to verify).

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll see if I can move away from curl-pipe-bash.  It was the winner in the poll, but the comments showed I was missing some much better alternatives.
