It's not `improper` to keep the same pre-FHS structure. A lot of
people don't care about FHS. I personally don't like files spread out
all over the place. Instead I prefer things be kept in a single
location so things are easy to keep track of. For that reason, I also
use ONEDIR=1 in my vdr Make.config. I didn't have to move any files
anywhere and upgraded VDR with no problem.

Don't do something because someone else does it. Do it because it's
what you actually want. If you don't want it that way, why force
yourself to go against your own preference? Especially if you're using
linux where anything goes.
