Instead cluttering your sdcard root you can also push the ntfs-3g binary to \system\xbin and change rights to 755.
After StickMount has found ntfs-3g / mount-exfat.fuse once it'll make an internal backup copy, you can remove it from /sdcard then. So no need to keep it around or moving it to /system/xbin manually
A proper quote includes only the relevant paragraphs, and a proper post never ends with the word "why"
