I presume the scripting only takes place on initial installs, because my 
wiki.d/ is completely free of .htaccess, and I have upgraded to 2.0beta7.

Given the potential variety of platforms that PmWiki can run on, an 
installer is a far-away dream and I would rather see your limited resources 
concentrated on PmWiki proper. The installation description could be 
improved by adding in alternative platforms. So for example: 
InstallingOnLinux, InstallingOnWindows, etc. I can contribute content to a 
Windows page.
