At the time it seemed like the right way to handle the VSA binary 
distribution.  We posted a binary blob that would just work when cat'd 
on to a Geode platform ROM. It was a painful to do by hand...

With the acceptance of buildrom and the new build configuration in v3, 
it seems as though we should change.  The user/buildtool will have to 
handle the compression and padding to the correct size (don't need 
padding in v3 w/lar).

I am going to make an new VSA release soon so this would be a good time 
to make this change.
