Has anyone considered creating a n-space with axes for each of the software
placement issues (machine-dependent, transient, needed-at-boot-time,
runtime/config file, whatever) to provide a degree of precision that will
satisfy the pickiest of OS's and mapping these to destination directories
for target OS's?  This could apply to man pages, et. al.
And, of course, a way to add new axes as we add pickier OS's or come up
with categorizations that offer performance advantages.

...still waiting for the remote-mount, configure for local system, compile
program, install & clean up whenever a new version comes out, universal
software update automation script.  :)
