Comment(by willimm):

 Replying to [comment:2 bdubbs@…]:
 > At most I think a note that a user may want to put a non-x built version
 of an editor on /bin might be appropriate.  On the other hand, how many
 users actually have /usr on a separate partition?  Users would probably be
 better off building nano into /bin for the rare cases where an editor is
 needed without /usr mounted.
 I agree with Bruce, as not many users (myself included) use an /usr
 partition. In fact, I use a seprate /opt partition (and X11 goes into
 /opt/X11), yea, more trouble than it's worth, really. If a user has to
 have a editor that goes into bin, then nano should be put there.
