I wouldn't hardwire paths (actually /storage is a real mounting point
on many of the systems I've seen doing clustered lvm, not really a
place to default mythtv to, although not many cluster racks will be
doing mythtv I guess ;) - instead why not use FHS standard paths and
symlink them to /storage? That way the packages remain the same, you
are FHS compliant, can share with ATrpms and you still have control
over where the bits land.
BTW I'm currently not sure the packages are 100% FHS compliant in this
respect. If you like we can review this and properly set it in stone.

Patches are welcome :)
