After I download and unzip QLColorCode.qlgenerator.zip and then double-click
QLColorCode.qlgenerator, all that happens is that a Terminal window opens at
location QLColorCode.qlgenerator (i.e., I'm now inside the directory
constituting the package, so that if I execute "ls" I obtain item Contents.
I'm given no choice of whether to install for personal use or otherwise; and
nothing is added to ~/Library/QuickLook or /Library/QuickLook.
