That sounds like a good idea to me (from what I've seen so far this is
the more common case in the Java world). I suppose that installing
individual .class files was easier to implement for now and nobody
bothered about changing that. Please feel free to provide a patch
(remember to update the sample config in src/collectd.conf.in as well)

Why do you think so?

If those files are architecture independent (which, I suppose, is the
case, but I'm not sure how JNI has an effect on that), /usr/share/
collectd/ is the right place for them (according to FHS).
