They are run "live" by CYBOI, which interprets them.
In other words, CYBOL files are the source + executable + configuration

They are pure XML, too. To /usr/lib or better to /usr/share?
If the apps & libraries are pure XML (and hence arch-independent), our current
policy suggests that you put them in /usr/share/xml/cybol or
Hope that helps...
