You serious? That sounds terribly discriminating. I am willing
to make it a distribution's problem if they are inconsistent (which
seems to be the case here).

Not just a non-standard location, but, from what you told me the other
day on IRC, the output of scrollkeeper-config --pkglocalstatedir, etc,
is wrong. A non-standard location would be fine if the supporting
apparatus was configured consistently.

I need to talk to some more Gentoo users on IRC, I think and get this
sorted out. For now, the gnome-doc-common module I have started has the
facility to work, in some sense, for everybody.
