Absolutely useful...   I suggest making a page on the new.scipy.org Wiki 
and uploading them there (to upload to the Wiki I think you create an 
attachment using attachment:<filename> Then, when the page is rendered 
you can click on the resulting link to upload the file).

We could easily place links to this site for downloading. 

The old SciPy site already had such a page of pre-compiled ATLAS builds.

Thanks for offering.
