	I'm not sure if you are intentionally flaming me or you're just
inadvertantly insulting my intelligence, however neither sentiment is very

	I did end up making it work, after perusing the code. It is necessary
to have the top line of your script begin with #! in order for the replacement
to be done. Furthermore the install script isn't smart enough to automatically
know which files it has installed, so if you make changes (as for testing)
to the script in question you have to uninstall the just installed version in
order to see changes made. That _is_ documented, but is unintuitive behavior
that I initially missed.
