I personally don't mind.  However, the scripts are the work product of a
project done for the Taipei City Government.  So, as trivial as it may seem,
I do need to check with them to see if I can release them.  I hope you
understand that I wouldn't want to violate my contract terms.  :-)

It may take a day or two to get the answer.  I'll contact you off list it
that is OK with you?  In the meantime, you can also consider use of DKMS
from Dell over at http://linux.dell.com/projects.shtml
