We could install "aquamacsclient" in a location that is usually in PATH.

At least the failure mode wouldn't be a silent fail, but a complaint  
such as "can't find aquamacsclient".

The current tools installer allows people to manually select /usr/ 
local/bin as target, warning them about the fact that this is not  
normally in PATH.  And it warns people about the incompatibility.

The Aquamacs (and Mac) philosophy is to not require people to mess  
with their .bash_profile file or wherever PATHs can be set.

Aquamacs and Skim need to work out of the box.
