Ah, this is a very interesting article, thanks. Though the author does not
seem to be a big fan of per-user install in general. Do you have any idea
what happens with the user installer when user installation are disabled by
the administrator? I guess this just fails?
Also, which installer are you planning to ship on spice-space.org? Both?
Only one of these?
