1/pvaneynd@sharrow:~ :( $ grep '^/home/' /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list

After thinking it over I do agree with this. I will resist any change to move 
the cache directory over to a location beneath /home unless there is a change 
in debian policy on this.

I am willing to provide hooks to permit a user to move the fasls to a location 
of choice.

I fear I did not have time yet to investigate cl-launch but I'll try to make 
some time for it.
