Notice how systemd uses


Since a certain figure associated with the project is working with
RedHat, I can't help but think whether maybe SUSE was ahead of its time
to consolidate lib and libexec and that systemd copied our idea :-)

That was due to Debian wanting the systemd units in the root while not
being willing to add /share. Using /lib was the compromise. Systemd is
a very strange exception to all of this, because of Debian... :/
