The purpose is not to have a "multimedia" directory in each home
so I dont think "/etc/skel" is applicable.

The purpose of this package is to be able to easily load some
jpeg pictures, movies, mp3 files into the root file system
when you build a demo.

It is not likely to be used for a real products

At the moment, the package should not install *anything*,
until a developer replaces the file with own content.

To use it, you create a directory structure with your media file,
create a b2zip'd tarball, and replace the "multimedia.tar.bz2."

Dont have any specific preference for /home,
just seems to be practical for a demo.

Come to think about it, it probably makes more sense to
put it in '${D}/'.

This will allow you to update any part of the file system
with whatever you want.

If that is not OK, then what about "${D}//usr" ?
