	The only significant difference that I can see is that /etc
	could be put on a filesystem distinct to the one holding the
	binaries.  An end which, on a second though, I cannot readily
	suggest on how to achieve any other way.

	Essentially, we leave / for /etc/ (and mount points) only, while
	/usr/ still serves roughly the same purpose as before.
