So I just looked into this, and it seems that GetComponents is not 
currently equipped to symlink an entire git repo. This is a silly 
oversight on my part; I can fix it, but that would require another patch 
to GetComponents. Another possibility would be to create the 'bin' 
directory and link GetComponents into bin. Then users could call 
'./bin/GetComponents' or possibly './bin/CRL/GetComponents', the latter 
would allow for documentation to be linked as well.

It is easier to just change the name of the project to CRL. This would 
change the URL to http://github.com/gridaphobe/CRL. If I do this it 
would probably make sense to change the URL on my website as well; 
however, I know that ET and possibly cactuscode.org link to my website. 
Are there any other pages that link to it?
