...which causes such .xo packages to *not* be arch-independent!
...and makes bugs in those libraries harder and slower to fix!
Also, distributing such .xo packages violates license if not either the
full source is included as well or a written statement promising to
provide sources at no exceptional charge if later requested.
Distributing binary stuff without its sources is not outright bad, but
more complex and often more cumbersome: It is asking for "surprises"!
