Adobe was supposed to release a security fix for Adobe Reader on March 11th, 
which I haven't found so far. I guess it should be out "soon".
On the naming front, I don't have any problems with changing the name for 
script/package from acroread to adobe-reader, neither do I have something 
against changing the install location. Robby, what do you think about the 
rename of script/package?
I would like to wait a week or two for Adobe to release the security fix before 
submitting an updated script with those changes.
