Remind me again why putting stuff in /usr/local is "stupid"?

/usr/bin belongs to my package manager...

If I manually compile python for whatever reason I put it in
/usr/local/bin, as this is what the directory is for.

So why would you switch from a shebang which works always to a shebang
which only works on some very simple systems? This doesn't make sense for
