It's not what _I_ need; it's the burden on part of the redistributor, to
satisfy the GPL requirements:


  I downloaded just the binary from the net. If I distribute copies,
  do I have to get the source and distribute that too?

    Yes. The general rule is, if you distribute binaries, you must
    distribute the complete corresponding source code too. The
    exception for the case where you received a written offer for
    source code is quite limited.
