Basic installation and updates seem to be working (I haven't had time to
test extensively, but did give it a few runs with different combinations
of options); however, it seems that --search <name> is only returning
results for /etc/slapt.get.official regardless of which --config I
specify. If I have time to look into that further today, I will.
