The --script-dir option indicates where to install scripts.  Data is 
installed with the package, not to /usr/share.  Installing data alongside a 
package is more useful when the package needs to access that data, as there 
is no cross-platform standard location for the distutils to install data, 
and thus no easy way for a package to find its data otherwise.
