I want to give a procmail rule that stands on its own.  Although an
external script is possible, this is meant to be a joke, and in a joke
saying "use this procmail rule" is funnier (because more concise and
more straightforward and in a way more plausible) than "create this
script in your home directory, make it executable, and then use this
procmail rule".

If the procmail rule runs a "standard" external program, that's OK,
because people who don't have that program will just apt-get it.
