I hate all these most times empty directories under /, too. That's
why I have the following setup:
/mnt ... anything temporarily mounted
/m/a ... floppy
/m/cdrom ... cdrom
/m/zip ... zip-drive (ext2)
/m/zap ... zip-drive (vfat)
/m/NFS_host1 ... host mounted via nfs
/m/NOVELL_host1 ... host mounted via ncpfs
So I have a single dir for all external file systems and my / is es
empty es possible. In any case I try to keep / small.
The people who deal with policy should have two or three minutes to
think this idea over.
