Odd, it seems that /usr/bin/ plays a bit of a different role on OSX than it
does in Linux. I started to suspect that already a few days ago when a
friend let me poke around on her MacBook and I noticed dirs like that were
completely invisible from the graphical shell.

I made a mental note of this as I think I naïvely recommended to a few
people that they just copy chuck to /usr/bin/ on their Mac, I better stop
doing that. I would think that there must be a better better way of
notifying the user of the issue than simply ignoring the command even if I
can see the reasoning for demanding things like chuck be in a aplication
folder (on Linux one does need to make a mental note of what one dumped into
/usr/bin/ when one manually installs things there).

At any rate, it's good that things work now.
