I should probably update Shiny from Master, as I don't think there are
many (any?) features unique to shiny any longer.  I think the USB stick
configuration was removed because it required users to manually edit
/etc/fstab.  That's difficult to explain and easy to screw up.  It's
simpler to explain the (much harder-to-screw-up) dd command.
