I suspect you'll regret that inflexibility. :-) Some examples:

- A small Visual Basic app is checked into our source repository at work 
in executable form, so everyone doesn't need Visual Basic.
- Same for the compiled installer for a PowerPoint add-in, so everyone 
doesn't need the installer-building software.
