It should probably be changed yes. I myself just don't like having binaries 
in /usr/lib. Personally I don't agree with the FHS on that one; i have my own 
ideas on what belongs in 'bin' directories and what belongs in 'lib' 
directories. If I could have it my way, 'bin' dirs. will have binaries 
(whether they're interal binaries used by libraries-only or not I don't care) 
and 'lib' dirs will have just that; libraries (shared and static).
