Yeah, I've read it several times, and have often linked to it as an
example of why one should be wary of DJB's software. It seems to me that
since DJB doesn't follow his own advice regarding the filesystem
hierarchy (see both qmail and djbdns), it'd be odd for him to expect
anyone else to. *Especially* seing as he's a bit mental. ("I'm not going
to take this any more. I demand cross-platform compatibility!")
