One of the great perks of `python3 -m blurb` is it avoids needing to care
about your PATH on any platform.

Anyway, the next release of blurb -- whether that's 1.0.0.post1 or a bigger
release -- will have a blurb.py as well as the entry point giving people
the `blurb` command. And people can also use pipsi if they want to install
blurb as more of a self-contained command-line app (at least on UNIX; don't
know about its support on Windows).
