Change default dumpdir to /usr/crash?

Hi all,

I was wondering (since being bitten by this occasionally) why don't we change 
the default dumpdir in /etc/default/rc.conf to /usr/crash instead 
of /var/crash? The default partitioning scheme in sysinstall (when you press 
'A') creates a /var with only 256MB, whereas it retains a huge amount of 
space for /usr. Shouldn't we help Joe "the defaults" User have working
