Wow! When I shuffled the unfriendly "Use dpkg -L !" out, I thought that even
tar would have a switch to discriminate betweeb dirs and non-dirs. It can't,
but I learned from you that the next version will. Good!

Concerning perl, I have to admit that I hardly know the language. Maybe we
should have a weekly little perl contest so that we all could take advantage 
of the giant cumulative perl knowledge floating around here? Just kidding...
