Has anyone ever had .install_done be *useful*? In my experience, one of
two situations applies:
1. The package is already installed; the normal check for an
already-installed package will catch it.
2. For one reason or another, it's not installed; I want to run the install
I have never benefitted from trying to silently and automatically skip
the install step.
