but this is a misconception because the program *can* be used
individually, and it was also developed much earlier than whatever
/usr/lib/package you might think is appropriate. And last but not
least, you find eg. sendmail in /usr/libexec on BSDs, but not in
/usr/lib/sendmail/sendmail on Linux, don't you?
Anyway, I'll put the program where I think it fits, and it will be in
accordance to packaging rules.
