I have a script for the 32-bit version, but I only wrote that to update
from the previous version that I released that was broken (it used
checkinstall to do its work, and checkinstall doesn't do things in an
Ubuntu-compliant fashion).  New installs can just dpkg -i * and then
pull any deps manually, though I can easily modify my existing script to
do that for users.  It would probably be far easier to provide an apt
repo, but I can't figure out how to set that up with the amount of time
that I have available right now, so the script is the Right Thing.

I will download these and get them up within 24 hours.
