this discussion reminds me to a funny discussion we had in german Arch 
Linux forum. 

It is about a little tool and ends in the following Upstream recommendation:

"ALERT: Arch Linux users report that /usr/local/bin is NOT in their default 
system path, so they will need to put inxi in /usr/bin instead. "


So the inxi users are expected to have benefit in using inxi's quite 
technical output, but are not expected to be able to alter the system path.
