This change would be done in three stages:
1. Make the change to the filesystem package to add /usr/libexec to

spec-cleaner rule that assumes /usr/lib == %_libexecdir.
3. Make the change to the rpm package to set %_libexecdir back to
/usr/libexec. This one will cause a fair bit of work to fix packages
that do the wrong thing one way or another with %_libexecdir.
What do you all think?
I don't see really a problem with this subdirectories in /usr/lib,
as this is nothing a normal user should care about, and for
packages, RPM does take care of if the package uses the correct
macros. But I would not vote against it, too.
I have a much bigger problem with all the configuration files in
/usr/lib and subdirectories, because this makes it really hard
and difficult for admins to find the right one.
