I am a little confused by this question about moving files from /bin to /usr/bin on an Ubuntu 17.04 system. Reading the Ubuntu wiki says:

For Quantal, merged /usr should be supported. On new systems installer should create {/bin, /lib, /sbin} symlinks into /usr.

As this was from 2012 and I do not have an Ubuntu chroot, can someone tell me if the default is for a merged /usr and if not, if there is newer documentation that I am missing.

    I run ubuntu xenial, and /bin and /usr/bin are distinct directories, neither symlinked nor bind-mounted to the other. – spectras Sep 21 '17 at 0:33
