	How about wrapper scripts in /usr/bin , and each package puts its
stuff in /usr/lib/package .  Then put symlinks in /usr/lib/gensoft.  
Maybe even make a package that has scripts to maintain links in
/usr/lib/gensoft .  Other packages can registers themselves with gensoft
by calling scripts from postinst.  This way the implementation can be
changed by changing just the gensoft package.
