(And whatever envionrment/configuration the /usr/bin/docker stub uses to decide which to execute, as well.)

Currently, I can tell people to bind-mount /usr/bin/docker and the socket, and it’ll work *everywhere*. With this change, I’ll have to document a ridiculous matrix of how to launch a docker-using privileged container, varying on the host OS and the version of the host OS (and what version of Docker they’ve elected to use).

The assumption of /usr/bin/docker being a self-contained(-ish) binary guaranteed to be compatible with the running daemon’s socket isn’t entirely uncommon: A quick google search for “-v /usr/bin/docker:” shows ~1670 results, all of which are going to be broken by the eccentric change of making /usr/bin/docker a stub (or a symlink).

(Is there a more appropriate venue for this concern/appeal?)
