A few doubts about your contribusion:
* The added files are missing from the Makefile. Can you
  please fix this?
* flymaker.sh is a bash script and we have Solaris 8 on our
  list of supported platforms, so a /bin/sh script would
  be more portable. This will not not stop us from accepting
  your contribution, but is there anything bash specific
  in the script? A quick readthrough only revealed some
  '==' tests that is portably written as '=', but I saw
  no essential bash features used.
* Could even flymaker.sh be an escript? That might even
  make it work on Windows.
