This *doesn't* work for people who download manually with a browser
from the SlackBuilds.org webpages, or with anything else that honours
content disposition, so whenever I see a SlackBuild doing that, I fix
it :p

Furthermore, if you use the long-format Github download, the SBo
template Just Works.
