I do think that if packagers modify upstream sources (and that includes
changing the install location), this is something they have to deal
with first of all, and accommodating such changes from our side should
be considered bug workarounds (i.e. no need to explicitly test for and
only if it effects more than a handful of people, upstream (the
packager) has been notified and fixing it upstream is not possible or
just does not happen).
