Agreed.  It would be nice, however, to have the files placed by default
in the same places under RedHat and Debian binaries, and the source
distro, however, so the instructions are uniform.  I realize this may
not be a a good idea in the face of historical distributions, and I
wouldn't even think of doing it without buy-in from all interested
parties.  I'd rather not become the Debian maintainer, so there's some
self-interest here as well. ;-)
