I've had this rather insane idea of installing most software I can't get from the package repositories to my personal user prefix. Said prefix resides at ~/Local, which is where I place executables and whatnot, while ~/Modules is for programming language-specific things. e.g. GOPATH is at ~/Modules/go and OPAMROOT is at ~/Modules/ocaml, for instance, mainly to not mess things up I think. Incidentally, my PATH environment variable has grown rather large as a result.

Haven't bothered installing python stuff on my ~/Modules prefix yet, and it's not like I'm gonna care about it so.....
