	I still think there is merit in having a separate path
 component for things that are not very useful when I do not have my
 sysadmin hat on. 

	Indeed, there are a number of machines on which I do not have
 priviledges, and there is a special division for admins who
 take strong exeption to things being mucked around behind their
 backs. On these machines I do not need ifconfig -- and I know where
 to get them should I need them for diagnostics -- I just pick the
 phone and call someone to have the problem resolved. 

	I think there is a large contingent of users out there who are
 not even part time sysadmins. 

	Why is it so hard for sysadmins and part tiem sysadmins to
 enhance their path? 

	I think that FHS compliance, and uniformity with other Linux
 distributions is important as well.
