Remember that at present not only do we fail to mention the word
"usrmerge", the page we're planning to add a pointer to is one that
doesn't get users any closer to finding out about it.  We might as

           Support for the non-merged-usr layout will be dropped
           after Debian bullseye, so all users are doomed. DOOMED!
