Because it hadn't occurred to me that somebody might use it that way.  I've
been keeping my git repos and installed stuff in the same ~/install
directory, and recently was thinking about defining a separate directory to
keep the git repos in for ease of cleaning.  How would you feel about that?
Do you have a name preference?

Cool, thanks.  No idea about your permissions problem.  Well, I'd run it
through strace to try to get a better idea of where the permission problem

I know I came across permissions problems in the past.  There was a thing
where I had to grant myself permission to use DRI under ubuntu with:
"sudo usermod -a -G video username".  There was also some stuff with...
console devices or something, but I think that was only with DRM, outside
of X.
