Actually I think there was an earlier error, it was refusing to write
to package.conf for some reason. Maybe it should give up when this
happens, so the relevant error message doesn't get buried?

Also, how does one install WASH without root access? I tried to
specify the user package.conf, but if this doesn't exist then it looks
like the WASH installer won't create it, and also its pathname is not
obvious so it seems unfriendly to require users to specify the literal
