Ehh, it is possible to move a lot of the directories that Coda uses in
/usr/coda, to /var/coda by modifying /etc/coda/venus.conf. You can also
move the venus binary from /usr/sbin to /sbin.

Then it should be as simple as replacing /usr with a symlink into /coda.

    ln -s /coda/usr /usr

And you're set.

Don't forget to copy the /usr tree into /coda/usr first ;)
