Well setup.rb is a very old thing that people used to use in the dark
ages. I've only included it to make the tarball actually usable.

Look at INSTALL. There's a way to configure setup.rb by running it

I'd be happy to move the images and the .rhtml files into a share/
directory since that's probably a better location. They're only in lib
for historical reasons.

For packaging this release, you may want to do that manually, or to
explictly mkdir share; mv lib/*.{png,rhtml} share/.
