It works a lot better now :)

The script was testing for "upstream" texlive by looking for tlmgr!  But
the new texlive packages in Ubuntu include that utility, so the script
confused itself.

For some reason my Saucy VM is downloading stuff from the Internet at
70kBps, not 1.2MBps ~= 10mbit/sec which is what I usually get!  So
testing is taking a while...

I'll commit the edited script once I am a little more confident it
works.  Maybe another hour or so.
