Before we release 0.2.3 can we place make ayttm compliant with the FHS?
Per the FHS /usr/share is for Architecture-independent data... meaning
it is the incorrect place to place loadable modules:

Rather applications that have architecture independent data that is only
used by it should create a single subdirectory under /usr/lib:

Attached is a patch to switch to using /usr/lib/ayttm for the modules.

Also attached is a perl script for fixing the module path in the
configuration file.

I've been running the equivalent of this patch and using this script in
my rpm for a while so it should be safe.
