I implemented this solution in the beta Phylip package but primary testers were disatisfied. Since there are many biology packages, they would have to add many /usr/lib/packagename/bin in their PATH.
I suggest to implement your solution *plus* a generic /usr/lib/gensoft/bin and a symbolic link to each raw program. So, mostly-biology users (most of our users here...) could add once for all /usr/lib/gensoft/bin in their PATH.
