My only fear with going with /usr/lib/misc or /usr/libexec is that
the actual move won't be pretty (I'll have to come up with some
way for users to migrate some config files), so I'd prefer to only have
to do it once.

That's why I want to be sure I consider every viable option and pick the
best location: so it's less likely I have to do it all again in 6
months.

Then again, maybe my migration strategy will be so good it will be easy
to do a second time :)
