Yes, it is. I'll update the script sometime soon and re-post it.

I don't really think this is appropriate - zenity is the tool which 
allows me to use gtk dialog boxes from within a shell script, it doesn't 
really have anything to do with openmoko or the FreeRunner. More info at 
[1].

if you're talking about adding this script to the wiki, then yes, it 
should be in the wiki, but it would more properly belong in [2]

The reason I haven't wikified it yet is that I'm not finished playing 
with it. here are my plans:
- making use of the 'which' command to locate dfu-util as suggested by 
david samblas
- checking that it's being run as root
- add support for flashing 'splash'

slightly longer-term:
- use dialog instead of zenity (all text output for more consistent 
look, faster, more flexible)
- use a settings file to save the location of dfu-util
- I've also written a script to backup the freerunner using this method 
[3]. I'm planning on integrating these two scripts into a nice 
menu-driven "uberscript" for both backup and flashing
