Pretty much.  It's nothing personal against you[1].  It's the principle of
it.  Binaries should only come from developers--everything else is
"untrusted".  It doesn't make sense to trust your binaries enough to
distribute them if we don't trust you enough to make you a developer.

[1] I was never fully convinced you should have been rejected.  I find
    you to be a giant pain in the ass at times, but the same can be said
    for dozens of developers.

Blast you and your estrogenical treachery!
