Perhaps you could use an intermediary server and a script.  The user
tells the script "works" or "doesn't" and then the script fetches the
binary via rsync from a special directory on the server that has the git
repo there.  That way the user only needs to download the binaries he
runs, and even then they'll be done incrementally via rsync magic.
