      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The `jpackage` utility has an option for Windows, `--win-per-user-install`, and I would like to see a similar option for macOS (and Linux?).

      Apple's guidelines for filesystem layout specifies that `/Applications` should be used for system-wide application installation and `~/Applications` should be used for per-user application installation. See [Apple's docs here](https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/FileManagement/Conceptual/FileSystemProgrammingGuide/FileSystemOverview/FileSystemOverview.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40010672-CH2-SW2).
