Correct. I needed to check my home system to double check.

My home Ubuntu system showed that it was installed from a repository,
and I found rpms when I poked at http://rpm.pbone.net. I'd assume the

As long as you don't leave quoted "blank" lines (which this message
has), it'll handle quotes pretty well.
