And if we put an appropriate curl script in the dvcs repo, they can do
that.  Even if we stored Bikeshed in the dvcs repo, you can't use it
straight from there - you have to install some dependencies as well.

Plus, Bikeshed *is* intended to be useful for more than just CSS.
Even if you *could* run it without installing anything else, I'd be
loathe to put it directly in the CSSWG repo for that reason.
