Which is quite illogical - because we are creating packages. therefore
we need to follow the view point of packagers. If i was just building
then installing without packages - it would go within /usr/local/. but
I'm not. I am creating packages for archlinux users who want to
install binary packages with no conflicts to KDE4 or other archlinux

we are packaging for Archlinux, therefore we embrace and take the
standpoint of Arch.

We != kde.

I am totally okay with our non-binary, documentation files going into
/usr/share/doc, but at this point it is still less of a hassle ( and
something easily changed ) to install to /opt/trinity/

Again, you have some skewed point of view regarding our packages. they
will be binary packages, that installed via a repository in a
completely normal way. nothing local about it.

Certainly not with that attitude.
