I put things in there that I find myself installing often for testing purposes.
Firefox is one of those things.  Steven Edwards sent
me a patch about the time I was thinking of adding it, so
in it went.

I do have two other scripts for applications.
links to
which can install 14 random apps user #1 wanted.
is a little script that installs a media player and some
codecs (mostly using winetricks), and a bunch of demo videos.

Those aren't ever going into winetricks.  I only mention
this to show that I do have *some* sense of taste.
