Does it make any sense to even attempt a typical install?

Yes, absolutely, its what its for

or does it simply make more sense to make the install sub simply emit a message:

"install sub"? pointless busywork ... and annoying too (stupid computer program here, you've asked me dance, but I want YOU to dance monkey)

If in the "traditional" sense of a distribution; how might I best determine what system (OS) I'm on, in order to copy the script to a proper "bindir".

In the traditional sense of a distribution, its none of your business; let ExtUtils::MakeMaker, or Module::Install handle it for you, cause thats its job; If you still want to know, you know where to look :)

I'm guessing to the Perl dir is probably the best choice. But thought I'd ask. To get thoughts on the matter, I hadn't already considered.

You've got enthusiasm, FANTASTIC, now leverage that enthusiasm to employ less guessing, more RTFM, more super search, more try it to see ... before you burn out and the enthusiasm wanes
