How would /home/linuxbrew/ be writeable by a non root?

Using /home/ like /opt/ is just weird. It seems the installer picks ~/.linuxbrew/ if the user doesn't have sudo privilege but no idea how it got to the conclusion of using /home/linuxbrew/ otherwise.

I agree with you about `/home/linuxbrew`. `/opt/linuxbrew` would be better.
