 There seem to be no commonly agreed rule for this yet, but personally
I think if a program with X support provides reasonable functionality
even without X, it should go to /usr/bin (regardless of an
app-defaults file).
 But, however, I don't think there is a need to change this (if xwatch
is usable without X) until there's a clear policy.
