I originally distributed my first Space Invaders hack as a patch 
against the original, though written in perl, and got such a 
huge volume of luser help requests that I ended up holding my 
breath and releasing the hack as a .bin.

Maybe people are more clued now, with the rise of things like IPS 
patches, but somehow I doubt it.  I'd be more inclined to 
release a patch as a VB program (or Tcl/freewrap program or 
something like that) if I actually supported Windows users in my 
spare time anymore.
