Actually the example in BZ was jsut an example. Sorry for not being more
clear, but I was referring to a more expanded use. Especially when we
move binaries around. The directory creation was just a convenient place
to show how useful it could be since we have to chown in a separate
command and the use of install eliminates that need. Plus add Tush's
comments about package updating and install really starts to look good.


You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a
reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating
the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle
for independence.
