1.)Sorry, I had changed my email, but the mailing list didnt seem to 
recognise it..
So I unsubscribed and subscribed again.
Sorry for any inconvinience caused, it was a hinderance to me too.

2.)I did notice that the folder in question was empty for me, but I 
didnt know if it would be empty for others :)

3.)I tried to address these concerns in my last message-

Ok, I tried
I made the doinst.sh file optional, if a user wants, he could run the

I have also included a script for doing post removal functions.
I wrote this info in the README.

The file to download is the same, 

Thanks! :)
