Which makes sense for multi-tenancy use cases, i.e. you have
different users/environments with conflicting applications/libraries.
If you are the only user and have root access, then this kind of
partitioning is not really needed. There are all kinds of wacky
solutions built around zones/containers, and they simply encourage
bloat and complexity.
