(I'm always amazed at how I can miss the simplest details. I probably 
knew at some point that OS X shipped with a case-sensitive file system, 
which you can turn off somehow, but forgot. Thank goodness for peer review.)

littler will install into /usr/local/bin by default, so I don't think 
there's a clash with the Mac binary provided by CRAN, right?
