Default Support for separate /usr, was: Moving lspci and setpci from /sbin to /usr/sbin?

Coming a bit late here, but anyway...

You two are talking cross-purposes: Ralf means that not every binary
in /bin,/sbin works without /usr and Chris means he's not stumbled upon
such an issue in years.

IMO, the more dire problem is that /sbin/sulogin links against
libfreebl3.so which is on /usr. That's just recently prevented me from
interactively running fsck on my root partition which had errors without
a rescue image. Somebody wants a bug for that or will it be closed
WONTFIX right away because separate /usr is officially not supported?
