Previously, we've been downloading the script from a link on the author's
website; as he updates the script, this file changes. This causes SHA1
mismatches and generally makes life annoying.

Thankfully, he's also got it on Github and has tagged exactly one version. So,
use that version until he releases a new one.

Has the SHA1 been renamed for anyone else? I've been unable to download it. Get Expected: fad32374f16802fa6bb94c41cdb9f50d63bfafcb
Actual: f7732c20107768caef4d80d49488d38bb821a717

Well, the hash associated with the tag appears to be different than what I changed it to, but also different than what you mention:

I wonder if he rebased it.

But he released a new version a week or two ago, so we should switch to that, anyways.

This has changed for a few projects it seems (e.g. MacVim) which may be related.
