[Slackbuilds-users] KeePass-2.38 installed in wrong directory

is there a real reason why KeePass-2.38 is being installed
in /usr/lib/KeePass-2.38  and not in /usr/lib/KeePass?

AFAIR few months ago I've submitted a patch and this was corrected,
but now I see KeePass is again installed in /usr/lib/KeePass-${VERSION}.

IMHO this is wrong, because this makes it harder to create packages
for KeePass plugins, like KeePassHttp, every time KeePass gets an update,
the plugin Slackbuilds need to be upgraded too, even if the plugin
was not changed. Plugins are compatible from one version to another,
and they are "recompiled" (by KeePass) at runtime.

I don't see any other program in /usr/lib/ which is installed
to /usr/lib/${PRGNAM}-${VERSION}, all go to /usr/lib/${PRGNAM}.

Can we maybe fix this once and for all? ;-)
