Happily we can override the FHS in policy. I for one would be happy to
see a policy proposal from the Hurd people that explains why /hurd is
needed instead of existing stuff like /boot or more generally
FHS-acceptable stuff like /lib/something, from anyone involved in the
Hurd who can refrain from calling the FHS people a pack of fools, and
who is capable of carrying on a sensible conversaion.
