Thanks for this feedback.  I'm not a big fan of putting the headers in a 
different place, myself.  So, perhaps a better solution can be arrived 
at that still let's people who can't install to the standard header 
directories use the sytem.


Knowing where the headers are installed is definitely important for 
developers.
