You can call it however you want, but my idea was to call it /usr
because the content of /usr is usually what the package manager
Everybody and everything should use the symlinks to / instead, not to
depend on /usr, right.

If we once redecide to place everything in / or elsewhere, we create
the symlink /usr for programs that use it.  I do not understand why we
would depend on it.
