file a bug.  probably an oversight on my part.

file a bug.  hal places its umount binary in / only because
historically, `mount` has been stupid and only searched that path, not
because it was needed "early".  since ive fixed util-linux though, the
hal mount helpers should be moved to /usr.

it depends

file a bug so i can fix gawk

/bin/mail is kept for compatibility with random admin scripts (both
packaged and custom).  not a big deal as anyone who needs to send mail
isnt going to have /usr missing.  i'd forget about this and work on
something else.
