ireminder.pl is a script that is meant to simply have a '--help'
command-line option. I saw Thamer's request for a manpage, but
dismissed it thinking it was overkill. Is there a place to put
scripts in debian (aside from the locations lintian checks)
that we can use (maybe /var/lib/itl/bin/ or /usr/share/ or similar) ?
Come to think of it, all the binaries ought to go to /var/lib/itl/bin
instead of the current /usr/bin - that seems to be what most pacakges
are doing anyways, no ?

Should I re-upload the 0.6.1 itools release to sf.net just to be clean ?
