I'd like to see a summary of their argument. From what I have
gathered they could write a script that did
mkdir -p /usr/etc; cd /etc
for ind in inetd.conf syslog.conf resolv.com; do
ln -fs /usr/etc/$ind $ind
And quickly convert their Debian system into the type that they want.
And dpkg won't overwrite things. And all will be well.
Have I overlooked everything?
