Well, that's a new program to me and looks like it'll do what
I want.  I'll contemplate it. To spot other news, I made a list
of current Scripts.  Two of the Filter* ones don't produce
any output and wait for input, so I deleted them. Also:

No -h output: ColorMake IsExecutable List TemplateScript
usleep GoboPath RemoveBroken

Error output:
DeduceName - DeduceName: requires two arguments.
FindPackage - Traceback (most recent call last):
GetAvailable - Traceback (most recent call last):
RescueInstallPackage - RescueInstallPackage: line 21: [: too many arguments
RescueSymlinkProgram - RescueSymlinkProgram: line 21: [: too many arguments
ScriptFunctions - (source): (source): No such file or directory
install - real_install: invalid option -- h
time - time:9: command not found: -h

I don't like install and time being scripts, myself.

Strange output:
GuessProgramCase - -h
