Subject Re: Packaging/scripts cleanup suggestions

Hi Lionel,

I generally like the suggestions.  The one thing I worry about is that
I think folks might like to put the APOLLO_HOME/bin in their path, and
if that's the case I'd only want apollo to show up on the PATH.  We
probably want to put those new support scripts in a different location
