The installation instructions are based on the idea that feeding text from a web site directly into a root shell is a good idea
They're not the first to do that, and I doubt they'll be the last. I was amazed that there wasn't a bigger outcry when Ximian gave similar installation instructions some years ago. It's the ultimate in trading security for convenience, and it was being peddled by a bunch of people that really should have known better.
