This metapackage ensures that your system does not implement
the fdo/systemd antifeature called UsrMove: move /bin, /sbin
and /usr/sbin to /usr/bin and /lib to /usr/lib, with no way
back, and absolutely requiring an initrd supporting that scheme.
This is not installed normally, but you may wish to prevent
accidental installation and thus probably want this package.
