Actually /System is reserved for stuff from Apple. Third-party apps that=20
install items in /System are evil. Cisco VPN unfortunately is one such=20
offender. /Library is for system-wide user-installed stuff. ~/Library is=20
for stuff specific to one account. This model is actually much more=20
straightforward than on other platforms.
