[Nmh-workers] fmttest program - where to install it?

I've been thinking about writing a program to test out format strings,
because the existing tools aren't quite good enough.  Also, maybe it will
inspire some people to do some of the format programming themselves :-)

But I have a dumb question: where should this program be installed?

The current tools, "ap", "dp", and "fmtdump", all live in $(libdir).  I
understand doing this for backend programs designed to be called by other
programs, like post & mhl.  But I never understood why those programs
were installed there.  Should this hypothetical test program be installed
in $(libdir), or should it be installed in $(bindir) like all of the other
nmh user-level executables?
