The easy answer is that you control the packaging, and the
specification of addon liq* applications:

   1) Don't use maemo-optify, install into /opt/liqbase directly.
   2) Other liq* applications install into whatever sub-directory/process
      under /opt/liqbase/ of your choosing.

This is also compatible with Diablo, when you want to maintain N8x0.

The mass of symlinks will probably cause problems with dependent
packages, similar to those seen by the PyMaemo folks.

Hope that helps,
