While they are certainly easy to work with, why not have a tarball that say extracts to /opt
and works right away. This kind of packaging will have all the scripts and files in its own
directory like /opt/cloudstack/{bin,doc,lib,etc}. What I'm suggesting is that we publish this
kind of distro and os independent binary packaging and let distro specific package maintainers
decide how they want to package cloudstack.

Location of things we depend on, differences in init systems, there is
too much shell script in CS to work that way, particularly for things
like the KVM agent.
