Actually I have quite a lot personally, with exactly zero problems.
On some of them I also enjoy advantages of merged-/usr, like having
multiple containers share the same /usr.

So these are machines you've had around since like lenny (with a bunch of people admining them), and you just ran usrmerge? The part that's confusing me is turning something like that into a container. I'm not talking about running it on new systems, that's obviously easy to test.
