Hi Laurent,

It seems that only two packagers (Ralf Corsepius and Michael
Schwendt) have registered objections to the /usr/include/CORE
location.  And they both point out that its a matter of good taste,
not a hard-and-fast rule that drives their reasoning [0].

If you can make the package work [1] with /usr/include/CGAL/CORE then
I think that satisfies everyone.  If not, you can go with the
majority opinion and use /usr/include/CORE [2].

[0] I think Ralf and Michael generally have very good taste in 
    packaging decisions -- but who am I to judge?  :-)

[1] In addition to Ralf's comment you can also get includes 
    by setting things like:

      export CPPFLAGS=-I%{_includedir}/CGAL/CORE

    or by editing the Makefile-s.

[2] It can be difficult to try and make everyone happy
    all the time.  ;-)
