Hey, April 1st was over a month ago!

/usr/bin is 1. required by the FHS, 2. required because otherwise we'd end
up with a huge PATH which slows down the whole system, 3. part of how *nix
works, 4. directly referenced in many scripts (the #! lines require a full
path, unless you use /usr/bin/env – which also requires hardcoding
/usr/bin!) and 5. just common sense.
