An universal installation script sounds to be a great idea for any distro!
Installing on /opt or where else; associating .blend files to open on it
would be a great addition for linux blenderheads. Even creating menu
shortcuts, for Gnome, Kde, Unity, etc.
It would save some time installing/configuring Blender. And this leads me
to another subject, but for another email...
