* dpkg-restore & gnu-utils made consistent with other extensions to use /opt/.mydsl_dir.
I think it's better to autoscan the dos swap file instead of needing to add dosswapfile boot option.
legalize cannabis, etc.
The gnu-utils and dpkg-restore were dowloading to /home/dsl/
That goes against my position of not having a large static extensions in /home/dsl because they would typically be in the backup and that only wastes time to write everytime. I made those two "extensions" download into whatever is in /opt/mydsl_dir just like any other extension.
On the dosswapfile, I would think that it would be the exception rather than the norm for someone to use such. Therefore, why make everyone suffer the slowdown caused by a needless autoscan when likely a dosswapfile would not be found. I try to be sensitive about boot times.
