Picky as in making totally unreasonable demands that made it last a
terrible 4 days, sure. Remind us what is our average review time?

I am completely shocked you feel creating a new root under /usr is a
trivial matter, given the ongoing pain of making badly-designed
software or packages conform to our guidelines, the years it took to
kill the X11 root, the lag we had to adopt /srv and /media, rpm (mis)
handling of symlink/directory changes, interaction with selinux
policies, etc

How will this stuff work with multilib? How will it interact with
backup systems? How will resorption happen in one release cycle?

Who is ignoring the problems?
