Greetings, Adam Dinwoodie!
That, however, doesn't give me anywhere to put the Bash fzf script.
It's not POSIX compliant, so I don't want to use ".sh". I can't
find any directory other than /etc/profile.d that Bash trawls, though.
If my opinion matters, I would advocate making scripts POSIX compliant, unless
there's strong reason to explicitly require shell-dependent functionality.
The script is fundamentally dependent on Bash features -- it's binding
keys in the Bash interactive shell -- and cannot be made POSIX compliant.
It's also part of the fzf project, and making extensive changes like
that as part of packaging someone else's code seems to rather negate the
point in doing the packaging.
