Bob -- yes, good point.  Since this script displays the files in your 
local mirror, any manual changes you have made would be there, but as 
far as editing the files from within sbopkg, that's not there yet, 
although it's a great idea.  I like Robby's idea of using $EDITOR to 
edit the SlackBuild from within sbopkg and that should be easy to do.

I'll add it to the TODO.
