   Old broken systems defined as "every UNIX platform in use
   today". Utopia is a nice place to shoot for, but we've got to live
   in the real world.

Well, the GNU Coding Standards aren't meant for `every UNIX platform
in use today', it is meant for GNU and its variants.

   I just think its a little presumptious to be referring to /usr like
   it is an abnormal feature of a corner case OS.

That corner case operating system is used world wide, and you (I
assume so by your email address) work for a company that produces a
variant of the GNU system.  So it isn't presumptious at all, on the

Happy hacking.
