Putting every binary into one directory excludes installing different 
versions of one binary. Obviously the coinstallation problem is unsolved 
for Linux distributions. Everyone is forced to do nasty workarounds 
where this could be solved in a proper way by agreeing on a standard.
   This *is* the problem of Linux distributions. FHS doesn't cover this 
problem properly and this is the point where it should be fixed.
   You're making life harder for every platform - not only Linux - by 
fixing their problem.
