comment Giving write permissions to www-data for a file within user's home with limited shell access?
Thanks @FaheemMitha - trying to set up HTTP access to bare git repos in my home directory there, which works fine, except for push, because in that case git-http-backend runs as www-data, and fails to update the bare repos; cheers!

comment Saving a email as file in mutt?
Just a note: if your email message contains attachments, then saving just the first entry from the attachments list will save the message - but without the attachments included inside.

comment Using process substitution to trick programs expecting files, with specific extensions as argument?
Many thanks for that @Gilles - I accepted this answer, because it answer the question generically. Unfortunately, I couldn't quite get scriptfs to work - here is a command log I saved at the time (AFAICR, stackexchange crashed that day :)) gist.github.com/anonymous/e9ee5e8c53d1b4c3c736 - so I ended up using a bash script approach which I posted below. Cheers!
