One quick note: I chanced upon my comment from 2 years ago regarding a bug
in sed that makes it go into an infinite loop with "-i" if /tmp is not
writable. Don't know if it still applies, but this is something to watch
out for. A workaround is to invoke sed with TMP (or TMPDIR) set to a
known-writable directory (e.g., "/etc/postinstall" or ".").
