Done - will be in the next batch of changes.

This will be fixed in the next batch of changes.

Well, we package it in /opt instead of /usr/local, but the idea is the
same.  I'm rather short on time right now - if you could pull the
script that's currently in the repo, modify it as stated, and then
submit the update via our submission page, I'll be sure to have a look
at it.  Otherwise, I'll probably forget - there's a lot on my plate
right now.
