No, IMO. One of the arguments is that we could possibly have both X11R6
and, say X11R7 with all the appropriate binaries and libs going under
those two trees depending on what version of X they have been actually
linked with (or even written for). /usr/bin/X11 and /usr/lib/X11 symlinks
just point to the default tree.
