Being the person that chronically complains about this :), I am for
the cweb method of handling this... Few things are more frustrating
than changing the mount tables for more than a dozen debian machines
just so I can upgrade or install emacs (as one example), so it can
attempt to remove and re-create a directory that is already there...
