CaptainMorgan, sorry for your loss. That's really tough.
The reason that flattened out versions are saved to your camera roll is so that you can show your panorama to people who don't have Silverlight or the Photosynth iPhone app installed. That is to say - you can email the flat version or add effects in Instagram or upload to Flikr or Facebook.
Unfortunately, traditional image formats like JPG simply don't have support for wraparound images. What I mean is that not every app that opens JPGs is capable of 3D projection, so if Photosynth gave you its cube map in your camera roll it would look distorted (moreso than the flattening out on a single plane distorts it) + disorganized to anyone who didn't have an interactive panorama viewer installed.
The tam is working on getting their HTML5/CSS3 viewer working in all modern browsers + when that is finished anyone who has a modern version of their web browser of choice will be able to view your uploaded panos.
