This has been discussed very lengthy already.

So please just keep in mind that this is annoying
some others, and if you don't feel annoyed, just
live with the fact you aren't alone in this world, and
that some of us prefer a separated /usr partition.

Let's go back to the topic ...

You don't agree with what? There's nothing to
agree or not agree upon. That's a fact, this is
what Gentoo guys are doing and why they are
doing it. This part isn't open for discussion.

Now, if you don't agree that it's going *to the wrong*
direction is another thing all together, but frankly,
I wasn't discussing it.

Now, I may add, I have no will to discuss it with you
anyway, after reading you impose on my your
partitioning scheme, and would like me to use my
computer the way *YOU* think is best. That is, by
the way, the same attitude systemd upstream has.

I don't know these guys, I can't judge...

...but I know that Gentoo guys aren't working
on their fork because of false assumptions only.
