Do we have statistics of how many people compile Fuse from source? I
would expect that most Linux users install it from their distribution,
now that it's available in the major ones (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora).

I can help with Debian, we can coordinate it if we really want to make
the release the same day, although it normally takes me a couple of
days so I don't think it's such a big issue. I expect to upload the
official Fuse 1.1.1 packages tonight or tomorrow. Libspectrum and
fuse-utils are already available.
