You are wrong. The /usr move has a very clear impact in being able to
snapshot your OS install partition. Add btrfs, yum hooks and the
already-implemented "stateless" configuration and you have a really major
feature: a fully upgrade/test/rollback setup for Fedora.

For OLPC for example, this could be a major win, hence my interest. I
definitely want it for my laptop. I'm sure many running rawhide will want
it :-) -- upgrade/test/file bugs if it breaks/rollback if it's real bad.
