Bug#597821: thttpd: Please move executable to /usr/bin/

Package: thttpd
Version: 2.25b-11
Severity: normal

I use thttpd only for one thing - running a webserver in a terminal
temporarily for serving up some pages when I need to access them in a
browser from somewhere else, for instance when doing some development on
a remote machine without a configured webserver.

It's really simple, thttpd -D -d . -p 8080

This is however made a bit more cumbersome by the fact that thttpd is in
/usr/sbin instead of /usr/bin. Could you please move it? As long as
there is legitimate use of it from normal user accounts, I don't see
what it's doing in /usr/sbin. :)
