Sometimes you have to clean up your room and tidy up the mess, which
piled up over time. This cleanup can be done on one day and checked in
by one person. It's not rocket science! It does not break anything,
because the compat symlinks will _not_ go away.
About "sbin": How exactly does "hiding" stuff prevent users, who open
_shell_, to use those tools? They cannot do any bad stuff with it anyway.
about the tradional difference "su" between "su -" and think about
bugs in these tools.
A user who doesn't have "sbin" in $PATH isn't exposed to the risks these
tools might bear.
It's not a means to protect users against malicious intruders,
comparable to "flaps on switches in real life", it's a mild means to
protect users against accidents they themselves might expose themselves.
With the compat symlinks, you even have no path problems anymore
any alien scripts you run. All tools are reachable through any standard
