"In those cases, the distinction between bin and sbin limits "namespace pollution" of tab-completion for normal users"

I'll query my normal business desktop users about that.

MOTD: Users. How do you feel about the pressing issue of tab-completion namespace polution on your Gnome desktops? Would you condider it to be more, less, or of about the same urgency as the world economy, the unemployment rate, and the predominent color of countryside bike sheds?
