I've recently been playing with the python.uci extension. As I use a traditional HD install, I copied the /opt/python folder to a temp location and then copied it back permanently the next time I rebooted.
I omitted to copy the python.app file that used to show up in MyDSL, so now I can't launch Python from the MyDSL submenu. This isn't a big deal, I can get it later and put it in there.
It has made me think that it would be helpful to have a menu command that could have done all the work for me. I find many of the menu commands helpful not only for the service they provide, but also for the understanding that they give me when I read the scripts. I've learned many things from these scripts.
I'd write the PermanentInstallUCI myself, but there are a few things I don't understand yet...
1) Is there a way to see what's inside a UCI without mounting it? Something akin to tar -t?
2) Does the python.app file in MyDSL come from inside the UCI or is it generated by the script that mounts the UCI?
3) Is there a way to unmount a UCI?
