RFC: new location of configuration space

I think it's a great idea to change the default location.
/usr/local/share/fai has never made sense to me.

On my cluster I export (mirror actually) /usr/local to all nodes,
which is a common configuration.  Clearly I don't need to have the fai
config directory available to every node.

At the moment I'm using /var/fai/config.

Perhaps it would make most sense to put the config directory in /etc,
perhaps /etc/fai/hosts-config?  It would seem to be consistent with
the Debian file structure, not that I'm an expert.
