Even if you can't copy and paste you still would want to seperate two commands 
by && irregardless of how you get the data in your shell.

Then again, if you type make <enter> you'll see your system start working 
right away so I doubt people will type make install right away. Now if you 
copy and paste those two commands it'll be a different story.

Oh, these changes were not meant to bring a halt to copy&pasting. Sure it 
makes it harder to do so, but that's not the reason for the changes. I would 
still copy-n-paste everything from the book. Just to make sure I don't make 
typo's when I'm testing the book's commands for errors.

Anyways this _is_ getting silly. If a command block in the book contains more 
than one command, they will be seperated by &&'s. End of story/discussion.
