Well, then users having a broken invoice have two options: either
install realcalc manually into TEXMFHOME or TEXMFLOCAL, and/or bugger
the author.

Now, removal of invoice is a bad idea to my mind, since people might
install it locally.

The moment at which two people approaching from opposite ends of a
long passageway, recognise each other and immediately pretend they
haven't. This is to avoid the ghastly embarrassment of having to
continue recognising each other the whole length of the corridor.
