I just found deskutils/alexandria (0.6.5_3) and installed it. A very nice
I have just one question: why does it create a directory (~/.alexandria)
with 777 permissions? Wouldn't it be more "correct" to use something like
740 or even 750?
Note: all subdirectories of said directory have 755 permissions too.
