Fortunately, the PATH concept helps to mantains this structure. The PATH
variable is scanned starting from the top, thus if PATH is

                PATH= /usr/srv/bin : /usr/bin

and we have the bogus "du" command in /usr/bin, and the GNU "du" command
in /usr/srv/bin, the GNU du take place only if the addon SRV is mounted.

It is: the SRV substitute almost EXT(extension).
