 I sent this to Bob Glickstein a couple of years ago but never heard
anything. Since I see you just released a new version of stow, I thought
you might be interested in a little patch I use. This patch makes stow much
nicer yet should have no impact on the installed base--It just adds support
for an environment variable (STOW_DIR) so that I don't have to type "stow
-d /usr/local/stow" every time I stow something. :)
