	Just a quick comment here: Some applications
will not work with this scheme. XEmacs, for example, looks at argv[0]
and PATH and uses this information to locate the lisp libraries. So,
in this case at least, it would be necessary to have a small
shell-script wrapper instead of a symlink.

	It would of course be possible to have a symlink to a wrapper
located in the package directory...
