   * .DEBs or .RPMs are not available yet, so
   * You maintain a script to do this,
   * I maintain a script to do this (which now uses mknetrel, btw),
   * People will keep asking questions on this (FreeBSD?)

So, until we have .debs or .rpms available, I'd say it wouldn't hurt
to document it, including a nice script.  Do you really find this
patch to mknetrel that gross?

I would really have thought, this patch would help more people, than
that it would be a burden.

     right thing rejecting this, and it doesn't take me too much time,
     I'll maintain this patch to help others, at
