First I contacted the debian Maintainer who tried packaging freeswitch  
once, but because he does not have the time the package has not been  
touched in quite a time. Until now I did not get any response so I  
will wait a little further and then talk with the debian quality  
assurance team.

Ok, I was thinking about this about the weekend, I'l have to talk to  
the debian group as well but I'l have an idea:
to be debian compliant AND to not interrupt with the way you provide  
your package we could do:

* Implement all packages debian specific (pathes, etc.)
* Create a freeswitch-pathcompatibility package which creates links  
to /opt so scripts/users which are allready acustomed to your scheme
can have it their way, and the debianers out there which love their  
debian conform system can simply deinstall / not install the  
pathcompatibility package and everyone should be happy!

What do you think of this idea?
