] Correct, except that it should be /usr/share/cogito/.

The FHS describes /usr/share as "architecture-independent data", and gives
examples like sound files and icons; this conflicts with executable code
in my mind.

However, packages like quilt and lintian put a bunch of executable code
there (internal scripts and script libraries).

Putting the internal scripts and shell libraries in /usr/lib/cogito
would mirror packages like base-config and pbuilder.

Seems like a somewhat fuzzy distinction to me.  I'll be happy to move
it to /usr/share if that's The Thing To Do(tm).
