What we are discussing now is not default filesystem layout here. So, I think
in disscussion was involved people who is interested in NeXT fs layout.

My 2c. Just to clarify situation.

Apple puts Frameworks inside Library, and iirc the logic of putting
Libraries inside Library was partly to be consistent with Apple, and
partly to avoid another top-level directory cluttering things up for
users.   I think both those rationales still apply.

I have no particular objection (ie it looks a logical place to me)
other than "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

Why don't we have a voting system for these cases where there is no
real technical issue, just a case of what people prefer?
