Also, if the file doesn't exist on the server (if you change a letter
in path or if platform would be removed from supported one for
example), it doesn't stop. I didn't try to investigate if there is an
easy way around that.

Also keep in mind that users need to update the original script
(currently still called first-setup.sh) manually.
