Not really, it's just a naming convention for where the config-specific
dynamic loader lives.  It doesn't affect where the remaining shared
libraries live.

The subdirectories could be called fred and jim and it would still work.
 The only thing required is that this part of the naming scheme be
agreed amongst the distros.

This looks to me like it's turning into a bike-shed painting excerise
between the distros out there.  That's really sad.
