As one of those loudmouths:

1. There is still no good reason for libexec.

2. Obviously the right answer with a standardisation decision you
   don't like is to wait until (a) it's implemented everywhere and
   (b) the people you originally disagreed with have moved on to other
   things, and then to change the standard to be the way you always
   wanted it to be.
