There is nothing retarded about shared /home directories.  They're
pretty common in the real world.

If you're working with QA to change the QA checks, then you won't be
triggering warnings.

IMO this isn't the right direction to go in, but we can always put it
on the council agenda.  Maintaining the status quo (pre-QA-check) in
the interim isn't unreasonable, nor is keeping your package behavior
as it is for now.  Obviously this issue has been around for some time.
I realize that you didn't invent it.

I guess this is the sort of thing that people will tend to disagree
on.  At least Gentoo doesn't force this nonsense down my throat.  :)
