Just for the record, what kind of issues is it causing? Is it about some
libraries needing to lie in /lib?

On my laptop, / is an encrypted partition while /usr is not. There is
nothing secret in my /usr, while there is in my /etc, and OTOH /usr
being unencrypted gives better performance.

Frankly, I could live without it.
