It's true that it's too easy to blame Lennart for the latest follies emerging from freedesktop.org, so sorry about that.
The freedesktop.org separate usr is broken page is what I had in mind when I vaguely recalled the non-sequitur '/bin no longer makes sense because it's common to have utilities in there dynamically linked to /usr/lib' argument, which I misattributed a minute ago to Lennart. (Obvious remedy to inappropriate lib dependencies: Don't Do That, Then.)
