How often does this happen? I haven't come across a font that uses commas yet.
And what are quotes for?
Quoting people? I probably should have put it in quotation marks :D

change for one (potential) use-case and frustrate the rest. Seems like a pretty big change that affects many with little effort to get the word out. I'm sure DC was thinking that.

^^ Oh, I gotcha. Quotes would make a lot more sense than having to -f each individually. Yeah, I'm surprised they didn't try to advertise the change more. Perhaps they just figured people would get frustrated and go look at the last commit? It doesn't matter now, as long as I know :D

I mistakenly pushed the scripts, changes made to the Readme, and some minor stuff ( Whew ! I kept beta siji on a different directory ;).

But I would really like your feedback or a PR on the new installer script :)
