I completely agree.  A while back I really wanted to try out xtla, but
after a quick (and horrified) look, I decided to wait until the
installation nonsense got sorted out.  Please, use the standard
default directory structure (and the standard configuration support)
so that things _just_work_(TM) in installations that already take
advantage of this standard structure.
