I have to object here. When we call "users" usually has far more
knowledge than the average user has. Average users know how to use a
few programs they have to work with and don't care about IP routing
and that stuff. Who needs traceroute, probably needs other
"administration" tools as well (although these people almost never
have root access) and are better off with sbin in their paths.
