For example, FBReader looks for all of it's icons withing /installedpath/share. So I had to release a version that works with compact flash cards and also mmc/sd.

However, I could setup the initial run script so that it makes a symbolic link somewhere on the root file system to wherever you have the program copied. I am hesitant to touch the root file system with a script though. I haven't yet, and I'm not sure if I want to before the unbricking option is available.
That seems like a better solution to me. One single link from the root system to your-favorite-application-folder sounds better than different binaries and the requirement for everything to be in the root of your memory card. But then I don't know much abut Linux
