Of course, since I was thinking about it, I just went through and changed this 
to:

    remote=:

and

    remote=false

for yes/true and no/false, respectively.  I'm about to do the same for $keep.



For the interested, this is because often, ':', and less often, 'false', are 
shell
builtins.  This makes constructs like:

    if $remote; then

faster and more succinct than:

    if test $remote = yes; then

This is portable.  Autoconf does it.
