Here's a gentle suggestion on how to more quickly (but narrowly) implement this
why not use Pippy to write a minimal activity that downloads the leases.sig
file [e.g. with urllib2, wget, or curl], tests for mounted USB sticks,
prompts the user if they're missing, and that copies the leases.sig file to
the USB stick?
I think this might be a good way to go because
* it'll be faster than figuring out how to solve file management,
* it doesn't depend on anyone else making changes, and
* it may be of some educational value to people who want to understand how
the system actually works and how they might automate it for themselves.
