And the overwhelming majority of these do so by including a list of 
repositories from which the binaries can be downloaded.

I'm 100% confident that we could convince Cisco to serve up RPMs, DPKGs, 
and whatever else is needed for these distros, targeting whatever 
platforms are required. Now, whether we can get the distro maintainers 
to add a single line to their list of repos -- because that's all it 
would take -- is a different issue. But at that point, it's just a 
matter of the distro maintainers being intransigent rather than any real 
technical or legal barrier.
