Can I object to the term "gensoft"? It sounds much more like "general
software" than "genetic software".
Since anything in /usr/lib is likely to be software-related anyway, why not
call it /usr/lib/genetic?
Also, if you do make a bunch of wrapper scripts or symlinks to the original
binaries, I think /usr/bin/genetic would be better for the symlink farm than
/usr/lib/genetic -- they're binaries, after all.
