I think it depends on the people involved. As a developer I prefer
everything in one place.
Our system administrators have to manage lots of machines (hundreds)
with lots of software on them (some we write, some third party). Their
perspective is that if they want to find a log file it's better for it
to be where all the log files are instead of trying to find the corner
of the file system where that particular app is installed. This appears
to be the preference of most unix admins (as evidenced by the various
linux/unix standardization processes).
