Oh, mostly because this is what I use myself..:-)

Feel free to document this alternative method. No problem...

Frankly....I don't know..:)

Notice: I think it would have been better if you used the source
package name as directory name in SVN. Also, from my perspective you
used the upstream's author *first* name (Khaled) as foundry name
instead of his last name (Hosny)... (to my knowledge, Khaled is an
Arabic first name.....I may be wrong in that case, though).
