I looked at the archives for April & May and couldn't see any mention of this. 
I'm not opposed to this idea (or at least I don't think I am!) but we need to be
careful about maintaining consistency throughout the book.  I'd like to see both
`mkdir` and `install -d` used, but only where there's a particular reason to use
one above the other.  The only thing I can think of related to this is when
changing permissions on directories, where `install -m 0750 -d /root` would be a
nice alternative to `mkdir /root && chmod 0750`.  I'm thinking those directories
that we create and don't need permission changes still use `mkdir`, all others
use `install`.  Thoughts?
