Would you mind commenting that script, in particular each individual
change of settings (or the major ones)? I plan on trying E17 or Elive
in early October and I would like to have a head start on the project.
In particular, I depend on "sticky keys" function so if you have that
enabled I would like to know how you did that: my inability to enable
sticky keys was the reason that I could not use E16 when I tried it.

based on it's Debian background, I suspect that .deb files may work to
some extent.
