Re: Which files in /usr/sbin?

I have been listening to this thread for some time now. As the debate has 
begun to get hot and heavy, I feel the need to point out that, to me, 
this looks like a difference of interpretation.
As I see it the major issue is the difference between NEED and USEFUL. 
The file standard says that if users NEED it, it should not be in /sbin. 
It does not say that program USEFUL to the user can not be there. 
I interperet the standard to mean that if a user MUST have access to the 
program to operate normaly as a user, then it should not be in /sbin. 
None of the programs being discussed seem to be in the need catagory.
Am I making any sense?
