  That line isn't supposed to be here anymore. It dates from a time when
backtick was a substitution command. Now backtick just puts its result
into an environment variable, and import/importas is the substitution
command, so the line is obsolete. Fixed in git, thanks. (Not fixed on
website yet because I'm probably going to do a release in a few days

  Ew, that one was really stupid. Fixed, thanks.
