sorry if this has been discussed before, but I really like Debian's way
of using /etc/alternatives as a place for variable symlinks. Also, as
far as I understand the FHS, "/usr/local/bin" should be the place where
to install binaries to anyway, not "/usr/bin", right?
So I'd probably suggest a package to install as follows:
/usr/local/bin/exectuable -> /etc/alternatives/executable
/etc/alternatives/executable -> /opt/package/bin/executable
Sorry if this is a dumb idea or has been discussed before - I just
joined the list.
