A sudo for each and every shell line ... hmmm, one could also sudo a self re-exec, or a temp file (or a here doc into sh);

I think it's done that way so you can copy and paste a line out of the script if you just want to do that part.

Good stuff - Printer Setup Aid (as it now is) from Sourceforge sorted out my problems with an HP DeskJet 5550 (again). Seems to have left my virtual printer for Acrobat (which still runs in classic) and the Page Sender Fax print software untouched. Good stuff. Messed up permissions though - could not reinstall the drivers - until Disk Utility was run to fix 'em but that is easily done.
