But what does FSSTND say about subdirectories of /usr/bin? I would
hate to have the mh utilities stored in with the illions of programs
already in /usr/bin. And where would the netpbm tools be stored [I
dislike Red Hat's solution of all >100 utilities getting mixed up in
/usr/bin]? Anyway, I'd like an option to avoid having > 500 programs
in /usr/bin. Let "modularity" ring :)
