Just to add another data point, I've given up on having /usr a seperate
partition. I'd be QUITE annoyed if sysinst made me have one.

My thought is that with just 6 usable partitions (5 on i386) on large
disks, it doesn't make sense to have a 32 Meg partition.

I understand other folks like them. That's fine. Just let's leave that
decision to local policy.

Take care,
