Then could you please show me a way to share /usr/bin over nfs? I see
the need to install, the idea in /usr/share is that it should be
possible to share it beween several hosts (saving some disk space)
that's just not possible eighter with the current "strong" packaging

Is a unflexible /usr/bin with over 1500 binaried one of the things that
makes Debian debian, I peronally think more of it as the development
process, the tools dpkg, apt, and not as /usr/bin /usr/bin or
/usr/extra/bin is not a that big difference. It will not change whats
debian in it. There are now a distinktion between packeges (local,
Required, Important, Standard, Optional and Extra) at leas in my packet
kind of view on Debian. More flexability could be good if it was used in
a sencible maner.
