And I find that fact mildly annoying considering that it is thus
not in the default PATH.  But at least a user is able to put sbin
into his environment despite of this (which wouldn't be possible if
sbin would be o-rx for non-root for example, there are other
Unices that restrict calling administrative commands).

Kind regards,
