That's swell.  However, I'm not going to be moving.  I don't want a script showing up in my sources.

So, I guess this is another option.  If you submit it as an option,
I'll apply it.

As is mentioned elsewhere, this also implies that mknetrel will be
released as a package for the unwashed masses and I hadn't realized that
I'd signed on for that.  I guess we can cross that bridge when it runs
us over.
