A lot of this is dictated by the FHS. If we were to eliminate the
sbin/bin distinction, we would definitely not be LSB compliant, and
while this may have little value to Fedora, it definitely does for RHEL.

Symlinks are fine, but we need to be very careful what we move/delete,
to ensure that we're not breaking LSB. (Or, if we really want to do it,
try to amend LSB/FHS)
