Therein lies the rub. Who would do that for MacOSX ? Certainly not
Apple. And certainly not MS for Windows OS. Again, we come back to the
question of who will be hosting/providing the binaries. If Apache can
not / will not due to licensing issues, then who will do it for these OSes ?

For the Linux distros, each distro already usually provides the
connector anyway, so effectively it is moot for that OS, and if you are
using BSD, or Gentoo, most of it is self-compiled/built/emerged (or not,
as the case may be).
