I'm hosting the script on my web site as a stop-gap measure since in the
future they will (obviously) already have it installed.  I suppose that
I could have put it onto security.freebsd.org instead, but since my web
site is hosted on the same server as update1.freebsd.org I didn't really
see much point.

As for where the documentation goes -- I have no objection to having this
turned into official FreeBSD documentation in the doc tree.  Given my lack
of experience in the doc tree, however, it seemed to me that posting this
to my blog was by far the easiest and fastest way to make the information
available.
