Ok, committed.

Well, there is not really the "correct" one. 
Any directory which makes sense is good.
It should be under share/, since the file is architecture independent. And I 
think it should be in a soprano-specific directory.
Which gives <prefix>/share/soprano/cmake/.

Since which version of soprano is that file installed ? IOW have there been 
already soprano releases which install this file to 
<prefix>/share/apps/cmake/modules/ ?
If yes, then I think we have to be careful with changing the install location.

If we would now just move the installed file from 
<prefix>/share/apps/cmake/modules/ to <prefix>/share/soprano/cmake/, then 
software which uses the "old" FindSoprano.cmake, let's call if kfoo, and 
which does 
will not build anymore (because previously the file has been more or less 
accidentially been found), but now, even though this is include() is not 
necessary anymore, it is still there in the CMakeLists.txt of kfoo and this 
include() will fail then.

Is this something we have to care about ?
