Then I think our problem is that we are violating this part of
the FHS. For example, the following utilities are regularly
run by users:
There are undoubtedly more examples, but I know traceroute is The
Biggy. It's a major tool that users run all the time, and there's no
reason for it to be in /usr/sbin. Should we file bugs, even though FHS
compliance is not a release goal?
