I don't know that package, but a quick glance leads me to believe that
it implements a pretty generic version of TCP. If that's right, you can
do anything with it (including binary packages). Anyway, when one uses a
script, there's always the possibility of a malicious intent on the side
of the programmer, so the users always have to be careful. The main
intention of my comment was that we should not make hacking any easier
than necessary (e.g. by offering possible ways to download arbitrary
data to QtScript ourselves).
