If it is a framework it must be totally broken if requires it's files in
web-accessible tree (I mean engine, not some icons or other media).

Wrong - how would you run multiple projects using this single location?
If it's not multiuser, there's no much sense in installing it via rpm.

You should have this index.php (packaged as template) in your
~/public_html and put into this file location of framework files.

It should in /usr/share/CodeIgniter, that's the point of packaging

Don't know CI, but corner case of Symfony or Smarty is having _single_
PHP file (index.php) in web tree, it contains only configuration (like
db); all remaining files is static content (media, css, user js etc).
