Hmm, it should be noted that if you do remove /var/run/foo from your package, you need to make sure the postrm deletes the directory in 'purge'. (Though in the glorious future when /var/run can be *completely* cleared at boot time, this won't be so important.) Then again, I guess packages already have to make sure to delete stuff inside /var/run/foo, on purge, lest dpkg declare itself unwilling to remove the non-empty directory.
