geoiplookup* binaries are now also looked for in /usr/share/mirrorbrain, so they 
could be moved there.
http://svn.mirrorbrain.org/viewvc/mirrorbrain?view=revision&revision=8291

metalink-hasher.py now prints a warning that it is obsolete, so it can be removed in 
the future.

There are too many scripts in /usr/bin, some of them not really relevant to the 
user/admin. Those could be moved to /usr/share/mirrorbrain, so /usr/bin is not 
unnecessarily cluttered. 

How about the following scheme:

/usr/bin:
 /usr/bin/geoip-lite-update
 /usr/bin/geoiplookup_city
 /usr/bin/geoiplookup_continent
 /usr/bin/mirrorprobe
 /usr/bin/null-rsync
 /usr/bin/rsyncinfo

/usr/share/mirrorbrain:
 /usr/share/mirrorbrain/bdecode
 /usr/share/mirrorbrain/create_timestamp
 /usr/share/mirrorbrain/rsyncusers

these can be deleted (they exist for backwards compatibility):
 /usr/bin/mirrordoctor
 /usr/bin/metalink-hasher
