But if you want to put wish in /usr/nobody_will_look_here/bin, you can.

Just put a link /bin/wish to the correct location. If you want to, put a
link in /usr/bin/wish, /usr/local/bin/wish and ~/bin/wish as well, in case
the script has a different hardcoded location.

Is there any disadvantage to this approach?
