Bingo.  But please see below.  Do you think I should follow ALU's advice 
here, that it should or does apply with youtube-dl? (Off the top of my 
head I imagine I'd have to edit the PATH variable, which is something I 
need to get a better grasp of.)

"However, if you still need some program that is not available in Debian 
repositories, try NOT to install them system-wide. This is the first 
rule that will teach you how not to break Debian.

      Install executable programs locally

You can make a folder /Programs/ in your home folder, and place all 
unofficial programs there. Many Linux programs come as executable files. 
So, copy program executables to the |~/Programs| folder.
