Since the autodownloader stuff came up, I thought I'd ask if
an easy way to install autodownloaded data system wide for most games

I ask because I found that for uqm the data get's put in the person's
home directory and didn't see any options for doing anything else. Nor
did I see any script that would allow root to copy the data someplace
else to make the data available to all users.
I filed a futurefeature request (498733) againts uqm for this, but was
wondering if this case was more the exception than the rule?
The case of autodownloader putting the downloaded stuff in the users
homedir is the rule, not the exception. For one simple reason: security
Making something like autodl work *safely* in a system central way is
going to be a huge pain.
