HylaFAX directory structure

Good day,

Since version 4.1, upstream HylaFAX changed its default storage
directory from /var/spool/fax to /var/spool/hylafax. However, as that
location is hard-coded in an awful lot of places, the current Debian
version still installs into /var/spool/fax. Apparently this creates a
slight conflict with efax, which should be resolved with the latest
upload. The question really is: which directory should HylaFAX install
into? Writing a migration script will not be trivial and on the other
hand everybody would be upset if the latest upgrade just forces them to
reconfigure. Keeping things different from upstream can create other
future problems though.

What are your thoughts?
