Does anyone actually share /usr ? Setting up sharing is rather easy, but
maintaining it seems like hell. As /usr is RO shared dpkg will not be
able to write to it from clients. We don't want it to write to /usr, but
dpgk will not accept that make upgrading software that has both files
in- and outside /usr impossible. Or is there some solution to this?
