/lib and /usr/lib

  I've always made a habit of putting /usr on a separate partition to
/. No particular reason, other than the usual arguments for a small
root partition. Imagine my surprise when my alpha failed to boot one
fine day a while ago.

  The problem was that libgpm moved from /lib to /usr/lib. And bash
required it.

  I can't find anything in policy to say that all library dependencies 
for binaries in /bin should be in /lib; should there be such a rule?
Or shall we not support a separate /usr partition?
