Of course it was intentional :) However, we do plan to gradually move
towards FHS 2.1 compliance, so we'll be using more of /usr/share in the
future.  Compatibility symlinks will probably exist as well.

Well, it too is part of FHS 2.1, and is a good way to modularize major optional
subsystems like KDE and GNOME.

I'd love to add Kerberos to the base distribution; however, since I don't use
Kerberos I'd don't think I'm the one to do it.  I would definitely support
the addition of Kerberos 5 to Gentoo Linux if anyone would like to tackle
the project.
