Well, I don't know. It is explicitly a recommendation, not a rule, and
/usr/lib is being used for every other language.

Note also that not every UNIX system follows the FHS. Not even all Linux
distributions follow the FHS. So, I believe it will not be possible to
provide a "one size fits all" solution, we'd have to go with the most
common path (backwards-compatible, at least with other languages :)

Anyway, I'd like to hear more opinions.
