...except when they can't be put on other partitions
because the binaries are linked against stuff in /usr/lib.
This bit me once, and never again will /usr be seperate
from /. Most distributions are better about this, but
still not perfect. Run this snippet, and tell me if you
want to split /usr and /.
for f in /bin/* /sbin/* ; do ldd $f | grep -q usr; if [
"$?" -eq 0 ]; then echo $f: ; ldd $f ; fi; done
