I don't see any real difference between the two, really. If it's not
legal to distribute the single binary with IDEA, then it's not legal
to distribute the module. And going the module way, you wind up
getting a large number of support requests saying "I downloaded the
module, but I still can't read IDEA traffic", since people tend not
to be all that familiar with editing gpg.conf.
I should also point out, while I'm at it, that I don't recommend
using IDEA. But the old RSA/IDEA legacy is unlikely to go away
anytime soon, not as long as there's a ton of poorly-written
anonymity software that depends on PGP 2.6.
