LOL, good one :)
I just don't see why traceroute cannot simply be put in /usr/bin and
a symlink (or other such measures like a wrapper) placed in /usr/sbin.
Would this not make both partys happy?
We would then be FHS compliant and using the symlinks is permitted.
Why should we have it in /sbin just because a lot of other UNIX OS' have
theirs in the wrong place. 

I find it repulsive to think that we would even consider making a
release that 'claims' to support the FHS but so blatantly does not. 

Lets get it sorted and get FHS compliant instead of talking about it!

Thanks

Peter
