I like to keep my stuff sorted better too instead of having it in all
different areas of the server.  When I set up my majordomo, I changed all of
the paths to point to the majordomo directory and its subdirectories, except
for the /tmp directory which I left alone.  So now everything is under
/usr/home/majordom and is easier to find and handle if I ever leave the company.
