This showed up on the Candy Cruncher beta mailing list. Thought I'd pass
it on.  What would this take to add? Obviously it's easier to add it to
the GTK+ frontend than it is to add to the ncurses one...

It might be advisable during the install procedure to present the user
with an option to make a directory (provided it can be made) instead of
greying out the "Install" button till proper paths are created. This helps
when installing in user accounts and the user doesn't have write access to
pre-existing /bin paths (like /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin) and they'd like
to create on in their home dir or somewhere else.

Also, it'd be nice if maybe you could use a file browser (the standard
gnome file select/browse/save-as widget) to select the directories to
install to. This is of course, cosmetic :-) I don't know how hard that
would be to do, or whether that's offered by gtk or gnome...
