Crap...sorry...but when linux (or in this case Ubuntu as Linux Distro)
diverts a lot from the unix standard, most people will fail to work on
real Unix systems like solaris, aix, tru64 or other Unix flavours.

Yeah, Linux != Unix, but it's a Unix a like, and we should follow some
unix rules at least.

I read about this FS hirarchy but it has IMHO some flaws and it will
give us a lot more upstream divergence (upstream in this case == debian)
