Yes, but no sane person should execute them directly. And those who do
want to, can always put the dir in their PATH. I think it would be a
good thing to reduce the number of gnome binaries in $prefix/bin. That
is, only have actual programs that the average user would execute from
the command line (a category which I don't think capplets fall in).
