I think that's well-understood. The target audience is probably not 
hard-core users but rather those where you're with a friend running 
Linux and want to say "just type apt-get squeak" or somesuch. But like I 
was saying, I know little of these matters so I'm not certain how 
valuable that would be. What do others think?
