I hope I won't get flamed for this, but I have just completed my most
ambitious script to date, and have completed the Linux dpkg Software
Report script which takes output from dpkg, and formats it into html
pages sorted by package section, such as Games, Editors, etc... and also
generates an alphabetical index to the packages.
This allows an admin to install the scripts in a system directory such
as /usr/bin, without needing to compromise system security.
Sorry for beeing a bit nitpicking, of course one can install files where
one wants to. According to FHS  it's recommended to put executables
not installed by the systems package management into /usr/local/bin.
This ensures that locally installed files do not overwrite files
installed by package management or aren't overwritten by them in future.
Also backup is easy because you only have to backup /usr/local.
