Sorry, reading the instructions closer -- it seems you only need to
run "sudo codetyphon" to update it, not for regular usage. Well,
that's still rather bad (together with the description to modify
sudoers) and should not be necessary (it would be nice to be able to
install it for current user, without sudo, not system wide). Although
it's not as scary as I made it out to be above:)
