Either way - but I'm pretty sure the current version of the Loki Installer making the rounds still installs to ~/bin by default (for single-user install). I was just rolling with the status quo there. :)

When installed for a single user the binary goes into his $HOME/bin (which I don't think is in the default $PATH on install, but I would argue that it probably should be, at least for uid>=1000).
I agree with this in its entirety apart from using ~/bin for user's executables. I think ~/.local/bin makes more sense and is neater. I suppose this is a matter of taste though.
