Re: Adding /sbin and /usr/sbin to everyone's path in F10

/bin vs. /usr/bin is motivated by the FHS mandating /usr to be on a
filesystem of its own (and systems to be able to boot without /usr being
available), while the */bin vs. */sbin split is motivated by splitting
_system_ binaries off from ordinary users' $PATH.

But until the "system" runs these perfectly and completely automatically (i.e. never), users will have to execute them under circumstances that are already confusing enough without having differences between having used 'su' and 'su -' first.
