I'm not sure of that.  I haven't moved /usr but I have moved /home onto a 
separate partition on the internal flashcard.  That way as I switch between 
different system roots I still keep my files available.

Definitely.  It also helps avoid reflashing when you break something (leave 
the original system on the internal flash so you can boot it to fix anything 
nasty you have done to your main system).

But, that said, I haven't checked how this interacts with installing the new 
OS update.  Anyone tried it yet?
