I was confused at that point in installation.  I thought it meant  
save the revolution system and wasn't sure how that was not the same  
as installing.  I considered the possibility that that maybe created  
a big installer file for moving to like systems, but that seemed  
unlikely since there are downloads for that, or were.

Even now that I understand that it means to save the file, it seems  
strange.  One candidate location for saving the file is in the  
installation, which, if I remember the installation right, did not  
exist yet.

And even if I (obviously obtuse at times) did understand that, I  
might have assumed that there would be no need; I would just use the  
copy in the installation file set.

Would it be a good feature to ask for?  That is, for the license to  
be installed as well as optionally saved to some location.

Maybe there is some legal or managerial reason for allowing saving  
but not installing.

(BTW, I have received a copy of the 2.7.1 license in eMail.)
