I was thinking of having it not install anything, and just
downloading and running it in-place. e.g.

$ 0alias fbdo http://wijjo.com/project/fbdo.xml
$ fbdo window.tile 1 3 w=pick

Then it could pick up the settings from an environment variable
($CMDO_PATH ?) and let 0alias worry about setting the variable to the right
