Haveing a separate /usr is wonderful, and once we finish moving /sbin/
and /bin/ into /usr/ it makes even more sense.  See the /usr page at
fedora for all of the great reasons why this is good.

What doesn't make sense is people who do that, refusing to use an initrd
or initramfs to make the whole thing work properly.

It's as if people want the benefits, yet fail to want to actually use
the tools required to get those benefits.  It makes no sense, and if
anyone continues to complain, it shows a lack of understanding.
