Pretty much. It's nothing personal against you. 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.
 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!
