Worse than that, since this postinstall script checks if smpc_dir 
exists, and does nothing if it doesn't.

So I think I probably want to change that to creating the smpc_dir if it 
doesn't exist, so we don't require that the updated setup has run (and 
completed, creating that directory) before we run that postinstall script.
