no, that wasn't my point.
the most sensible argument against files in /usr/bin is performance.
i.e. lots of files in a dir are slower then lots of files in many dirs.
my response is that that certain apps use lots of files in a single dir,
so kernel folks should be solving that problem (which they are).
