Is there a consensus that the mcafee wrapper and autoupdate scripts should
be changed to use new locations?
If so, what would you all like?

I can always put some checking code in the RPM so that it spits a big
warning if the old directory still exists, so you get told to move your
copy of McAfee to the new location.

Any suggestions welcome!
