You can sling all the insults you want, but the fact is

... the fact is, I have explained this multiple times on this very list,
I am tired of seeing the same fallacy come up again and again, and I am
tired of repeating myself.

fine with me, as long as the distro cooperates. But if the distro fails
to carry out the intent of  your software, there are worse things than
putting it all in one directory or tree, prepathing their location, and
running it that way.

1. There aren't any worse things than software breaking. Do I need to
explain again why software breaks when you do that?

2. Why aren't you suggesting the same thing to the ImageMagick authors?
or to the util-linux authors? Those are also dumping a lot of stuff into
/bin or /usr/bin, including a program abusively named "import" - for
which I was willing to concede, in the name of historical priority.
It's a real question. Why should I accept subpar treatment that nobody
else would consider?
