While I'm all for #2, if #3 is what happens, please make your symlinks the other way around.There are 3 ways to handle this issue: 1) All of a) and b) in /sbin, and /sbin not in users' path. This is the current setting. 2) All of a) and b) in /sbin, and /sbin in users' path. This is what you propose. 3) Symlink all of a) into /bin (or symlink), but keep b) in /sbin and keep /sbin out of users' path.
/bin/ifconfig ln -s /bin/ifconfig /sbin/ifconfigThe move is acknowledging that the binary is useful for end users and therefore belongs in their path (and thus rightfully belongs in /bin). The symlink is backwards compatibility for scripts and people who are used to typing sudo /sbin/ifconfig.
