The shell script got mangled!

Curious, I pasted your script into a text editor and noticed some really strange shell redirections: "&gt" "&lt" ?!

But then I realized that either you had encoded your [&<>]s for html, or that it got mangled by the comment processor.

Just thought I'd put it out there before someone tries to run the script as is.

You're right, it did get mangled. Since it's interesting to a few folks, I've decided to host it in proper source code controlled fashion on Github. You can get a copy of the latest version here.
