These are optional, right? In the first-run wizard, and perhaps a button in prefs in case it was turned down in the wizard.

It's bad to install stuph without permission.

Umm.. they aren't at present. iChat installs its scripts that do the exact same thing without ever prompting.

I'd say just note in the changelog that they'll be installed and the exact path to where.

The basic flame against SCR is that the stuff they installed affects all loaded apps.

That sounds pretty reasonable.
