  So then since /lib is very much still a directory and not a symlink, then I

(1)   cp -a /lib /usr
(2)   rm -r /lib
(3)   ln -s /usr/lib /lib

... and the kernel modules for the running kernel ending up in /usr/lib/modules
and udev ending up in /usr/lib/udev -- are all OK with this?  And what is /usr
and /lib as _separate_ partitions on the main box? softlinks won't work across
partition boundaries -- so what then?
