I've brough the "local/share" problem up twice before, but nobody every
said anything.  Granted, it isn't directly related to the problem you're
having right now.

There are three types of "local" directories...

	1) local to the machine
	2) arch-dependant local to the network
	3) arch-independant local to the network

And only two standard locations: local, share

We've finally given up waiting for a solution and use "local" for #1
and "share" for #2 (with #3 being merged with #2).

                                 ( bcwhite@verisim.com )

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
