I would want to put it in /usr/share/ipa/client to avoid two packages
spamming the same directory. Of course, that means that neither package
owns /usr/share/ipa (which I guess is already the case).

And by custom package, do you mean a separate package from
freeipa-client or a rebuilt package. A separate package wouldn't work
because it could overwrite the existing template and if you rebuild the
package you can change the python.

Any packaging experts have opinions on this?

Basically - I agree with the goal, I just don't think we have time right
now.
