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.
