User software goes into ~/bin - that's right but with a caveat. What 
goes into ~/bin is user-specific.

If I wrote a system-wide application intended to be available to all 
users of this particular computer, /opt/bin would make a good choice.

It's of course merely a suggestion, but does help to keep /usr/local/bin 
cleanly reserved for what gets installed via pkg/ports.
