I highly discourage moving more things to /. If you google for things
like, "case for usr merge", "understanding bin split", etc, you will
find much information that is very enlightening about the /usr merge and
the reasons for the /bin, /lib, /sbin -> /usr/* split.
I'll start another thread about this farely soon, but for now I'll say
that even though Fedora is a strong advocate of the /usr merge, it
didn't start there. Solaris started this 15 years ago, and I think it
would be a good thing for gentoo to implement the /usr merge at some
point to make us more compatible with other unixes. Another thing to add
is that it appears that at least Fedora and Debian are doing this.
