Frankly, I'd love to "stick it to the Man" and bundle the chrome keys. It would
place Google in an interesting position. 

With that said... looking at the mailing list this feels like doing Google a
favour. Clearly they do not care about their users, and do not want us to
distribute the packages. Why help them keep users for a few more weeks and put
in a liable situation?

It's dissapointing frankly.
