/var is where the logs go, as well as MySQL databases and Apache's
default document root - I always partition this separately to prevent it
filling up the entire disk should something suddenly bloat in size. The
only other volume I tend to keep separate is /home for obvious reasons,
in my experience /usr is unlikely to fill up unless you specifically
tell it to (ie. installing loads of new software).
