I think we can simply create /sbin -> /bin and /usr/sbin -> /usr/bin

I don't want httpd or nscd or hald in my path. Or halt, for that matter. But
anything that *is* useful for non-root users should be moved or symlinked to
bin.

Does that mean you're volunteering to maintain the magical, amorphous,
ever-shifting, ever-controversial List Of All Binaries That Are Useful
For Non-root Users? Oh boy!

Prepare to spend the next few months in arguments about what is and
isn't useful to non-root users.

While you are at it, why don't you hide all the files in /bin and /user/bin that aren't useful to me today and just expose the ones I want?
