The initiative has been taken by other distributions, and I don't see

is close to inevitable.

1) We are not that compatible to begin with

I would prefer architecture neutral file positions very much
(/usr/bin/i386 for binaries, /usr/lib/i386 for libraries etc), but I
don't see how that can be "compatible" with RedHat/SuSUE.

2) A symlink?
