Good point.  I just commited this list as "Upstream-Contact" in the
debian/control file.  For those who did not noticed:  The packaging
work targeting at a Debian package is done here:

    git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/pkg-grass/otb.git

Any member of the Debian GIS team has commit permission.  So if you
intend to become a member - anybody is welcome.

 $ otbcli 
Usage : /usr/bin/otbApplicationLauncherCommandLine module_name [MODULEPATH] [arguments]
 $ otbgui
Usage : /usr/bin/otbApplicationLauncherQt module_name [module_path]

To come back to my original arguing:  It seems 


are not intended to be called by the user but the user rather should use
the shell script wrappers.  In this case we could consider to move

    /usr/bin/otbApplicationLauncher*  to   /usr/lib/otb

... but these are also details and no major point.  Just explaining the
Kind regards and thanks again for your cooperation
