Jordan has contributed a new installation image that uses /opt instead
of /Library/Framework (which is what we used in Beta1).

Can you install this one?

We depended on external developers to do the packages, and the packages
I got on the second iteration came from someone with a different
opinion on paths.

I was not aware of this issue, this is a source of extensive debate as
you can imagine among the MacOS developers.

Personally, am fine with /opt.
