No, it was more to do with the concept behind Software Collections.
Disregarding the fact it installs into /opt, it looks a similar
principle; a set of supplementary ports installed elsewhere in the
system (in /opt) that do not clash with system stuff.

It was all rather light hearted on my part. My apologies if that was not
made obvious in my post.
