Not sure what a 'non-think' machine is, but certainly machines with
different hardware architectures can share those directories.

There may be development libraries
which it is easier to keep updated at a single point: /usr/lib/ruby, or
if you are obsessive many of the library directories under /usr/lib.

IMHO, it is better to keep local copies of libraries, mainly for
performance reasons. In the case of development libraries there are
likely to be different versions in dev, test & production and careful
and comprehensive version management should be in place.

There may also be shared resources like corporate cryptographic keys.

And you want to trust those to NFS :) You're avvin a larf, aincha?
