Now you are asking if it can be anywhere, and I already told you that this
technically is the case.  But that doesn't mean that it isn't useful to have
them in /hurd anyway.  Just as icons can be anywhere, but it is useful to
have them all in /usr/share/pixmaps.  I even used that particular example in
one of the other mails where I explained it.
