* the FHS?
Standards can be updated.
* "#! /bin/sh" in thousands of existing scripts?
Indeed, I forgot about it. Backward compatibility is important.
In any case
seems to be more portable solution.
If anything, wouldn't it make more sense to move stuff in the opposite
direction, from /usr/bin to /bin ? "usr" doesn't really mean anything
- originally it was used because the filesystem format couldn't
support more than 64MB(?) in a single volume, so the system had to be
split to / and /usr.
Also, Fedora already sort-of has a system for stateless OS images -
see /etc/sysconfig/readonly-root. What will happen to it?
And more importantly, what is the overall benefit to our users? I
can't find anything compelling in the "Benefit to Fedora" section (if
/usr/ can be snapshotted, why not / ?); AFAICT this requires changing
257 packages for mostly aesthetic reasons.
