Or if those resources end up costing more than the small benefit, a middle 
ground would be to provide binaries for a some sample configs that show 
what can be done, without every other config being just a slight 
modification of original sample config.

But if setting up a compiling server is that easy, then go for it: it might 
be enough to encourage those stingy people to take ghc.
