Since the "survive in the future" card has been played a couple of times
in this thread, here are my $0.02.

If systemd breaks the FHS there will be a lot of ticked of ISVs when
they have to change their build system and/or application to accommodate
whatever may break. Annoying app vendors is not the best way to achieve
success or "survive in the future". Not that a transition cannot be
completed, but when presented in the steamroller fashion as things are
presented here the reaction on the other side is probably not very positive.

Nobody talks about renaming things, stuff will still be there.

This is only about early boot and how things are brought up at bootup
time, mainly the task of moving / into /usr. And having a single
directory containing the _entire_ system, which can be shared read-only
across many instances.

And apps should not care what is mounted which way, as long as it's
there -- just like they don't care about the underlying storage, be it
nfs, or a disk, or iscsi.

We will have something working, to show, and to talk about after the
summer I guess:
