I could do it. But, frankly, this is quite a lot of work. I think
the work (throughout the Debian ecosystem) to test this properly far
outweighs the minor benefits.
And if I do test it and find a lot of bugs then am I going to be
expected to report them all in detail ? That is also a ton of work.
Am I then going to be expected to retest when the bugs are allegedly
fixed ? I think this is just outsourcing the pain of bad design
If we must get to merged-usr on all systems eventually, Adam's
proposed transition plan is much better.
