Because it is being incorporated in a larger work: My
presentation accompanies a HOWTO, and has various scripts and example
code to elucidate the point. I have been able to incorporate parts
Colin's presentation into mine, and accompany that with

be packaged; by the seed of it was the presentation, and now
something has grown up around it.
