Yes. There is no change needed for the packages i tested until now
(except placing an additional file called elMakefile into the install
directory). And if a package would require to change its directory
structure/whatever, that is clearly a fault of elMake then and needs to
be fixed.

This will of course mean for developers to maintain two different
install methods.

Sure. I don't want that either.
