Spotify for linux binary?

Spotify released a native linux client about a year ago.
It would be awesome if I could use it on my linux desktop at work.

Unfortunately, these computers are managed by a central server and so I can't install anything without system admin rights.

I was wondering if there was a binary available that I could run from my home directory?
The operating system we use is openSUSE 11.3 64-bit.

If you're in an environment that has centrally administered
machines you probably would be in breach of your computer use
policy in the first place, even if you installed it locally
to your home.

Make sure your contract and your works policies are OK with
you installing stuff before you request help w/ this.
