For anyone who is interested in my script, and the background to it, but 
who is not on this list, please note that I have published it on my 
personal website at

That includes a link to the latest version of the script.

If someone wants to mail me (off-list) a brief guide to how to use the 
sa-update channel corresponding to the core file grabbed from the 
google-hosted project, I'll add it to the article. Noting however, that 
this route doesn't provide you with an easy means of adding addresses to it.
