Why would it be better to have 500M in /opt? That's the sticking point.
You're saying that you don't want a standard that allows distributions
to put things in /usr, and I'm saying that there are distributions that
want to do things that way. Can you offer a reasoned argument to support
why your way is right and the other way is wrong?
