the script that creates abslibre and that's currenctly broken is this
one[0].  i wrote it a long time ago and it tends to break for unknown
reasons.  sorry i haven't had time to fix it.  i can do it during next
week but anyone beating me to it would make me a big favor :)

i'm happy to answer queries about its design
