Current boostrap relays on curl which may not be available on the
hosting system.  If other alternatives are available (wget, ftp, scp),
I can retrieve the file and save it in /tmp.  As last resort, I can
cut boostrap content from a browser and paste it into a ssh window in
order to pipe it to mr via stdin.
