> The idea with ~/.local is that it's a mirror of the directory structure convention in /, /usr/, /opt/ or /usr/local/.  In other words it's got "bin", "lib", "share", "etc", etc..  ~/.local/jython/lib suggests that the parallel scripts directory would be ~/.local/jython/bin, which means I need 2 entries on my $PATH instead of one, which means yet more setup for people who use both Python and Jython per-user installation.

Right, good idea
