Guys! I think the fellow is looking for a procedure as to how he
_should_ do this! So, why don't we give some ideas?
Syrus, you might consider packaging it to put itself in /usr/bin as
colour-ls, with a manpage colour-ls.1, and asking the fileutils person
to stuck something in the ls.1 manpage about it. Or your could ask to
have your colour-ls become the ls binary, with a postinst that asks
whether or not colour should be enabled for the system by default,
