I don't want to force people to run this script as root. Running stuff 
as root is a really bad habit. I want this script to be as non-root 
friendly as possible. There is only one step that *might* warrant root 
access and that's if the destination directory belongs to root.

    /\/_/   A life? Sounds great!
    \/_/    Do you know where I could download one?
