Re: options: was Red Hat is moving from / to /usr/

I'm a UN*X dinosaur.  I started using UN*X in 1984.

I don't like this idea of folding /bin, /sbin, /usr/sbin into 

I think the reasons to segregate /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin 
and anything in /usr/local/* still exist today.

I want more segregation, not less.  Actually, I've wanted all the 
config for /usr to be in /etc/usr (which is a symlink to /usr/etc) 
for a long time.

But, by the time anyone hear of efforts such as this, there seldom 
seems to be time to stop them.

Hence, my question is, if this continues to happen, what do we 
move to for a kernel?  Free-BSD?  Plan 9?  Something else?  Is 
anyone working on a migration scheme?
