That was mentioned in the meeting. Also the possibility of going with 
simply /opt/<appname>, though there is some risk of namespace collision 
there with user-compiled apps.

Any other suggestions on path names? This is still pretty open, but 
we'll need to lock it down soon, because we're making changes to Quickly 
and other packages for Natty to support whatever install path we choose.
