wrt 'svn co' vs. copying from within the tree-

fwiw this makes the individual scripts less useful on their own.
e.g. a couple of days ago I was testing out one of the install
scripts on Debian/Lenny, by a rough cut & paste into the
terminal method, and it was nice to have the patches be
automatically found on the server.

having said that, I don't think that is a big deal, either way
is fine with me...

sure we can, it's already taken care of. I migrated all the
paths away from trunk as soon as we branched off the old version
so when we tagged it everything would still work as desired.
It just took a minute to do with 'sed -i'.
