I would be very happy if this behaviour could be phased out.

For what I think are very obvious reasons, I prefer to
keep executables and data in very different locations,
and in practice on separate partitions and even on separate
hard drives.  The present system (which is admittedly
no different to Microsoft's equally insane view of the
world) perpetuates the philosophy that it is normal
for both programs and data to share the same space;
IMHO, this is an ill-conceived idea which should be
phased out as quickly as possible.
