I've tweaked the wording on the message in this patch as I wasn't
entirely happy with the phrasing, but whilst doing so I noticed there
doesn't seem to be any error checking to handle the case where the
extension cannot be installed (for example, because the user is using
a hosting site which hasn't installed the contrib modules).
There's also no way to permanently suppress the message box, which
could become very annoying.
Final thought - we also have a guru hint about the admin pack
(instrumentation.html). Shouldn't this patch touch the same places as
that hint (as well as anywhere else it makes sense)?
