Nice job.

One remark only: 
if you speak about 'rather than trust pre-bundled binaries provided by third parties'
then I'd expect that you would offer in your scripts the option to download the sources from
the official websites. As it is now the (linux) script downloads the sources from your website, 
which to an untrusting person (like myself ;) )  also counts as 'pre-bundled'.

Just a suggestion, in no way this is meant to detract from your much appreciated efforts.
