Saying "there's near consensus" doesn't make it so.

The amount that "2" is worse than "1" is large enough that the bar for
saying "eh, let's do that then" needs to be pretty high.

Once upon a time, traceroute was in sbin and *that* got fixed. I don't see
any reason we can't fix the other _tiny handful_ of commands this affects.
(Especially if the sudo securepath option is also enabled, which reduces the
number further.)
