	a) I am not sure we have done this kind of testing at all so
	   far. Not enough people run without /usr/doc to have any
	   kind of coverage for our 8000+ packages
        b) I'll close the bug, just like I'll close any bugs that say
           you have removed /usr and expect my package to work. Policy
           dictates that /usr/ exists -- and though it is meant to go
           away in the future, we are not there yet.

 who can't figger why we can't just make a plan and stick to it
