That is very cool, thanks for enlightening me. I have another question 
-- is it possible to get Compile to work on other *nix, i.e. by 
configuring it symlink to ~/bin instead of /System/Links/Executables, 
somewhat like GNU stow? I ask because there is a lot of package 
management on that I'm doing on a university box that I don't have su 
access to. I've already spent a fair amount of time writing scripts to 
automate installation of some rather obscure packages, but it'd be nice 
to work within the Compile framework.
