I agree. That's one of my gripes with the Linux version of X-Plane. They
like to shove everything in one huge directory. They say it's good because
if you want to remove X-Plane you just delete the directory and you removed
everything. They even encourage Windows users not to use shortcuts.
Why would someone want to put data in /usr/bin/? That doesn't make any
sense to me. But I am a relative newcomer to the *nix world, 7 years.
