Alea iacta est. While I agree that move could be planned better, it's
not exim (nor any other MTA) fault that someone took bad decision to
hardcode path to sendmail.
SMTP forwarders aren't as crucial as bash is, therefore I don't see any
reason to revert changes or delay moving binaries to /usr/bin. Just
message maintainer that his package is broken due to recent changes.
