Am I the only one considering subdirectories to /usr/bin a bad thing?

Wouldn't it be much better putting stuff somewhere in /usr/lib/surfraw
and then add surfraw script to /usr/bin:




exec ${CMD} "$@"


People who want to use the commands directly could still add
/usr/lib/surfraw to their $PATH and people who doesn't want to polute
their $PATH to use the package can just use the surfraw script.
