Doesn't matter as sh was executed and thereby the bash installation is
OK :-)

Doesn't matter. It is up to date enough since the last change to wget.xml

Don't know. But I would be careful. What about  /tmp and /var ? I think they
are sensitive to not beeing writable. But there are people with more
