Looking at the code, I would summarize the new best practice as:

* Introduce HTML using Callbacks and components in $RTHOME/local/html
* Introduce libs in the RT::Extension namespace in $RTHOME/local/lib
  and use the module from RT_SiteConfig.pm.

Did I miss anything? 

Why even install the libs in $RTHOME and not just the perl site
lib? Just because it is of no use without RT?

Thanks for the great new extension!
