+Leiningen is for automating Clojure projects without setting your hair on
+fire. Working on Clojure projects with tools designed for Java can be an
+exercise in frustration. With Leiningen, you just write Clojure.
+Leiningen bootstraps itself using the 'lein' shell script; there is no
+separate 'install script'. It installs its dependencies upon the first run on
+unix, so the first run will take longer.
+Hence, this build script just installs the 'lein' shell script into /usr/bin/,
+then you need to manually invoke 'lein self-install' as normal user, which
+won't touch system directories but install some stuff into ~/.lein/.
