The last time this had been brought up, it sounded like those were

that (I don't have an easy way to get all the spec files and grep
through them like I do for Fedora package specs...), but I think those

What does this change mean for all the configuration files and *.d
directories below /usr/lib?

Configuration files full of things that should be hard defaults anyway. :-(

sshd_config has the libexec path in it for the sftp helper, and moving sshd to
/usr/libexec will require a change in sshd_config too. Now, if that part of
sshd_config was in /usr/etc, that would be a no-brainer, but someone's going to
get an rpmnew/rpmsave file in /etc/ssh for the time being.
