1. I understand that. But if the functions defined in the package
write temp files, then the files are created when the functions are
used, not when the package is read in.

2. My question was: how do you prepend that Run[] command to $Epilog
without knowing the initial value of $Epilog? If you don't know the
answer, you better don't reply at all.

What you did here is very irresponsible. What if some novice user
reads this post and tries your command?
