yes, the symlink should be possible, as armin also points out. I already 
thought about it, but I was not sure that distributions like ubuntu allows to 
put a symlink in /usr/bin to something external.  But indeed, looking at my 
/usr/bin it seems that symlinks are used a lot, so it should be fine.

So, does this mean that we are going for solution number 2?
