/package is an access point, a way for software and users to confidently
access files. It is not a physical location.
The allocation of files to filesystems is, as usual, up to the system
administrator. Some reasonable default ways to set up /package: a big
separate filesystem; a symlink into /home; a symlink into /usr; etc.
For the (increasingly uncommon, but still important) sites that share
packages across machines: /package supports smooth file sharing inside
packages. See http://cr.yp.to/slashpackage/sharability.html.
