I've just removed mcfn_install and all references to mcfninstall. The
whole thing is a beautiful reminder of the good old days when everybody
was a hacker (smart enough to patch .bashrc) and nobody cared about
security (never mind that the shell executes whatever mc sends to stdout).
The "-P" flag support is a known problem. Unless somebody makes it work
in a secure way, it will be removed before 4.6.0 release. I don't want to
be responsible for the old hacks that nobody wants to fix, but some may
want to exploit.
