Did you know about http://www.gobolinux.org/ ?

They've actually used a similar filesystem layout, although IIRC it's
based on a few patches that make /usr, /var, etc. invisible to the
user rather than really replacing them (and it still has these
directories at least as symlinks to other locations). It clearly has
nothing to do with Debian, but maybe something to get inspiration

Not to say that moving stuff around to get to such a setup even as a
concept Debian install wouldn't be a huge undertaking.
