I thought about that earlier. We could just put a URL out there
(Anduin?) with the links on it, and link to it on the man X pages
for folks that want it. That would be easier than Wiki, I suppose.
But I'm like you Dan, I don't see a great need, when we have thi
slick wget thing.

BTW, I've meant to say this the last few times, and then forget.
We could add some error checking to the download snippet on the X
pages. Just to make sure each file is downloaded properly before
going to the next one. I realize an MD5 sum at the end of the
download would work, but why not identify an issue as soon as it
is recognized?
