    This would _not_ be "perlscript.pl" itself. This is the shell-script, and
    it's not called ".pl".

    In other words, you'd put this as ~/bin/cg-xxxx, and then "perlscript.pl"
    wouldn't be in the path at all, it would be in some separate install
    directory.

    But hey, if people want to be safe for bad installations, add the extra
    line. Shell won't care ;)
