Why wasn't it enough of a problem to bring up until we went to a dynamic
/?  Not having a usable FTP client if your libs are FUBAR'ed isn't new
with dynamic.

Now that it is brought up, where does it end what goes into /rescue?
Having what goes into /rescue bounded only by what is in /[s]bin,
/usr/[s]bin is what worries some of us.
