Actually, ultimately I agree with Helge, but perhaps the simple way to do
this is to have Binary packagers use strip tools in their packaging to strip
them down, if that's what the user wants, but have the default be deep

I'm far less concerned with deep vs. flat, then by easy path setup, as
mentioned in my other post.


P.S.  I'd love to, but for my wife who speaks not a word of German.
(schade... ;)
