You can make an RPM out of it.  It allows random quote generation from a
preset list of quotes (which you can change to your hearts content).  I
use it in cron to generate my .sig quotes for evolution using the --sig

4,19,34,49 * * * * muse-sig.pl --sig

You just need to tell it which sig file to write to.

Disclaimer:  I wrote it.  :-)  If you have problems getting it built
into an RPM or installed and running, let me know (or post a bug to the
bug db - http://www.ximba.org/bugs/index.php).
