I know several systems having different kinds of approach to the
same problem. Scyld is not the only beowulf system, and I doubt 
if, other systems are using it.

If scyld is already using that location "/etc/beowulf", 
I wonder if using beowulf would be the right term for us.


might be a better place to locate stuff into.

The key problem is that as far as I know, there is no
such centralized system available in Debian.
At least, none of my packages have it.
