It is a script that interacts with the user.  This is usually run from the
command line, but I would like to spare the user of such a step and have
it start on its own after boot.

I would have it called from bottom of /home/user/.bashrc, but that file
doesn't exist until after lh_build is executed.

This is a bash script that I expect to be owned by user.  When/if the
script exits, going back to the shell is fine.

This is Lenny (stable)
